The Library

Throughout its life, the Melbourne Athenaeum Library on Level 1 has provided Melburnians with access to a hand-picked collection of books and reading material. Today, the library holds a 30,000-strong collection and hosts regular events, talks, book clubs and a screen club. It provides a warn, inviting reading room to relax in the heart of the city, and payment of an annual subscription allows you to become part of this extraordinary institution, part of Melbourne's history.
