We're Australia's Favourite Library Service!

Hume Libraries received over 30,000 votes via phone, email, text and online to win Australia's Favourite Library Service!

The campaign, run by Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), received over 220,000 votes from across Australia.

Hume Libraries proved to be very popular with a great number of nominations coming in from our users. Many of our Library users were thrilled with the services Hume Libraries provides, with voters saying the real stand outs were our wonderful facilities, staff, programs and services.

As one nomination stated: "I would love to vote for the Hume Libraries as the Favourite Library as we use their services quite frequently as a family and love what they offer… It is just pure luxury to have such a great service around the corner from home."

Over 527,000 users visit Hume Libraries each year, and borrow more than 992,000 items. The Hume Libraries membership rate of 59.1% of the municipality is well above the Victorian average of 49.1%, and proof that people living in Hume certainly do love their local library!

Thank you to all those who voted and encouraged others to vote for our Libraries.
