There are a number of ways you can support the LibraryMuseum and Lavington Library.

Become a Friend

The Friends of Albury Libraries and Museum are a community liaison group that provides feedback and support to develop programs, services and collections. The Friends committee meets on the last Wednesday of each month between 4.30pm and 5.30pm at the LibraryMuseum.

Become a Donor

We are always interested in donations that help us preserve our sense of history for current and future generations.

Our collection would not be what it is without the generosity of donors. With their help we are able to preserve objects of significance for the benefit of the wider community. Potential donations are considered in the context of the AlburyCity Cultural Assets Development and Management Policy, existing collection holdings, provenance, conservation requirements and storage constraints.
