If you are looking for a quiet place to read, write and reflect, visit our community hub: the Writers Victoria library.

Our library is located on the third floor of The Wheeler Centre, right next to our office. The library is open between 10am and 4pm on weekdays (excludes public holidays).

All visitors to Writers Victoria must make a prior booking or arrangement. Get in touch with us at members@writersvictoria.org.au and we can arrange a booking during business hours (10AM–4PM, Monday to Friday). Visitors with appointments will be required to scan a QR code upon arrival and follow COVID safety guidelines for the building.
