Anyone who has set foot in State Library Victoria knows the feeling of awe at seeing the magnificent domed ceiling in the La Trobe Reading Room.
They know the wonder of walking the halls and seeing paintings from important moments throughout our state’s history. They will know the giddiness of seeing Ned Kelly’s armour.
But there are Victorian children who will never get to experience it. For families living in regional and rural communities, the cost of travelling to Melbourne simply isn’t affordable.
Your generous donation can help provide grants to schools that need it most, ensuring all children get the chance to access the Library, no matter what their family’s financial circumstances are.
Your support helps us build and share the Library’s collection, present free public programs and exhibitions, and provide all Victorians with access to the world’s best knowledge and resources.
