This website is one of a number of activities undertaken by Libraries for Timor-Leste Inc comprising volunteers drawn from the Victorian Public Library Network, the State Library of Victoria, the University of Melbourne and others working to support the development of libraries in Timor-Leste.

Libraries for Timor-Leste Inc is a not-for profit organisation.

It recognises the significant contribution libraries make to social, cultural, educational and economic development and aims to:

  1. Support the development and sustainability of libraries in Timor-Leste.
  2. Raise funds to assist library building infrastructure projects, collection development, lifelong learning, reading and digital literacy programs  
  3.  Provide scholarship and other appropriate opportunities for current and prospective Timorese library staff to access library skills, training and development.
  4. Increase community awareness and action to support Timor-Leste library needs.

Much of the effort of the group is focused on fundraising activities to support Timor-Leste’s libraries. These include trivia nights, dinners and information lectures. Funds raised are transferred to libraries in Timor-Leste for the purchase of new library and literacy materials, building, services and equipment support and training and development..

This website provides up-to-date information about Libraries for Timor-Leste Inc activities, information about libraries in Timor-Leste and the important work undertaken by their staff and volunteers.

Thank you for your support.
