From the beginnings of the College in 1872, the Library has been built into a hub of historic and cultural significance as well as an excellent academic resource.


The Leeper Library of Trinity College encapsulates the best of traditional and modern library service. The Library was founded in 1872, with a small collection of books donated by the first Warden of the College, Dr Alexander Leeper. Since then, the Library has grown to be a significant resource for the students of the College as well as the custodian of heritage resources that reflect the history of the College. Located on the first floor of the Evan Burge Building (Main Campus map), the Library provides an excellent place for study and knowledge collaboration.

The Library also houses the Mollison Library, the Provincial Library of the Anglican Church of Victoria. The library has a significant collection of Theological works.
