The Murmur Library is dedicated to providing a space for people and their stories to exist outside of the white gaze. Our focus is to highlight and house Black, Indigenous and other culturally diverse voices in poetry, fiction, non-fiction, children’s literature, zines and magazines.
To become a member of our library and begin borrowing books please either make a donation to the GoFundMe or directly donate a book from our wishlist by dropping it off or mailing it to the cafe.
Another way to support Murmur Library is through the Amplify Bookstore 'Pay it Forward' program.
Amplify Bookstore is owned and run by People of Colour, and stock a beautifully curated and diverse selection of books by Authors of Colour. Through this program you are not only supporting the library, but another incredible BIPOC business.
The Murmur Library is located in Kines at 11 Hope st, Brunswick.
This library is situated on the stolen land of the
Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation.
We pay our respects to elders, past and present.
We acknowledge this land was never ceded, sold, or given up and extend warmth and solidarity to all First Nations people.
Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
