Athena with Foliage

Throughout its 175 years, the Melbourne Athenaeum Library has provided Melburnians with access to a hand-picked collection of books and reading material, and made a significant contribution to the city’s cultural fabric.  Library members enjoy regular author talks and book clubs, access to Victoria’s finest collections of biography and crime fiction (not to mention the rest of our collection) and a friendly and relaxing space to read or write in the heart of the city.
