Celebrating 50 years of Moonee Valley libraries

This year the City of Moonee Valley is excited to celebrate 50 years of our library service!

In 1968, Flemington, Sam Merrifield (then Essendon) and Niddrie libraries opened their doors to the public for the very first time, marking 50 years of operation. This is a wonderful chance for the community to celebrate our libraries’ rich histories and the opportunities they continue to provide people of all ages, from all walks of life.

Throughout 2018 the Council be holding family-fun events and undertaking several exciting initiatives to celebrate this milestone, so get involved and share your memories!

There is a range of events and activities happening throughout 2018 to celebrate our libraries’ 50th anniversary!
