Library Services regularly collaborates with local community and educational organisations, including Swinburne University and Boroondara’s Neighbourhood Houses. Collaborations provide creative and inclusive connections. The links below provide access to outcomes of recent and ongoing collaborative projects:




Gallipoli and Beyond 2015

25 April 2015 marked the 100th anniversary since the landing of the Anzacs on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey.

Read more about the commemorative events and activities that were held in Boroondara to promote historical, social and cultural understanding of this period in our history.

We have launched Stories to Tell, a collaborative project with senior library members highlighting the timeless appeal of vintage children’s literature.

Stories to Tell has inspired the production of 11 postcards and a 75-book booklist that features much-loved titles including Peter Pan, Bambi, The Magic Pudding, Blinky Bill, The Famous Five series and Winnie the Pooh.

Each postcard features a classic children’s book cover on the front and describes the library member’s special connection to the title on the back.
