A library is a collection of sources, resources, and services, and the structure in which it is housed; it is organized for use and maintained by a public body, an institution, or a private individual. In the more traditional sense, a library is a collection of books. It can mean the collection, the building or room that houses such a collection, or both.

Many libraries are a Council responsibility.
Victorian Local Government Act 1989
Sections 196 & 197 of the Victorian Local Government Act 1989 pertain to the creation, management and winding up of regional libraries. There does not appear to be any requirement in either section for Councils to provide a library service, and libraries are not mentioned elsewhere in the act.
