Indigo Shire Libraries


Indigo Shire Council now manages all its libraries, in association with the Swift Library Consortium, following the closure of the Upper Murray Regional Library on 30 June 2013.

This is great news for communities because being part of Swift gives us greater access to books and services. The Swift Library Consortium is a co-operative network of public, school and TAFE libraries across Victoria and NSW.

With more than 150 branch libraries, the Consortium provides patrons with access to three million books, magazine, DVDs, and other items which can be requested from any participating library.
