What is Living Learning Libraries?
Living Learning Libraries is an evidence based guide to the development of library services in NSW. Written in two parts, it provides a practical basis for the comparison among library services, as well as a framework for service assessment and continuous improvement.
We are currently updating the Living Learning Libraries standards to reflect the 2016/17 public library statistics. The standards will also reflect population changes as a result of the 2016 NSW council amalgmations. The new standards and worksheets will be available in the second half of 2018. Libraries and councils can continue to use the the 6th edition until the new publication is available
The 2015 (6th) edition of Living Learning Libraries has been updated to include figures based on the 2014 Public Library Statistics.
