Libraries and continuing education

Submission in response to the Australian Government Smart Cities Plan, June 2016

The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Australian Public Library Alliance (APLA) welcome the opportunity to respond to the Australian Government’s Smart Cities Plan, with its three pillars: Smart investment, Smart Policy and Smart Technology.
 
Public libraries have an important role to play in this vision:

  • Libraries as hubs for urban development
  • Libraries as technology hotspots
  • Libraries supporting business and enterprise
  • Libraries providing lifelong learning opportunities
