City of Melbourne has a range of child care options - council and community-run centres, family day care, outside school hours and school holiday services. We own and manage five children’s centres and there is a range of schooling options in the municipality. The City also provides a broad range of health and support services, programs and resources to assist the community. Melbourne's libraries welcome people to read, connect, create and learn. We have six branches across the municipality - City Library in Flinders Lane, Kathleen Syme in Carlton, Library at The Dock in Docklands, East Melbourne, North Melbourne and Southbank Library at Boyd. Melbourne has a big number of strategies and plans in place to keep you and your family safe and to prepare the city for emergencies. This great city aims to assist in building strong communities by supporting organisations, programs and services that develop a sense of community in the municipality.
