Adult Literacy Connect: Public Libraries and Adult Educators

Library at the Dock

September 12 from about 12 noon (TBC)

Libraries are increasingly apart of our learners lives and play an important part of developing the language, literacy and numeracy skills of our communities.

This pre-conference event investigates the new and emerging role that libraries are contributing to the adult learning space and how we can work together to improve community literacy.

Library at The Dock

Library at The Dock, one of six public libraries and one of community hubs in the City of Melbourne, is the civic heart of Docklands. It offers traditional and digital catalogues, free wi-fi, a range of unique events and multipurpose rooms for hire.

At three storeys, 55.3 metres long and 18.1 metres wide, and made from engineered timber and reclaimed hardwood, Library at The Dock is Australia’s first 6 star Green Star rated public building, as awarded by the Green Building Council of Australia. It’s also won several other sustainable design and architecture awards since opening.
