Brave New Worlds: libraries, learning and community needs

Although they sit outside the formal education sector, libraries are intrinsically centres of learning where people can engage with knowledge and ideas and acquire the
literacy skills essential for active participation in society.

Brave New Worlds: Libraries, learning and community needs brought together professionals working in libraries, universities, adult and school literacy programs,
and non-profit organisations to explore the role of our state, territory and national libraries in community learning.
