Exciting times – the State Library of Victoria’s ‘Vision 2020’ project will see a huge refurbishment and the creation of new spaces, with a 40% increase in public space!
To fund the library upgrade the State Government has pledged $60.4 million, contributing $2 for every $1 raised through philanthropy.
Donations to date have reached $21.8 million, with large contributions from Maria and Allan Myers, the John and Myriam Wylie Foundation and the Ian Potter Foundation.
The remaining $5.9million will be sought through a public fund raising campaign.
I can’t wait to see the final result!! 🙂
