Goulburn Valley Libraries
October 2017

Traditionally, local public library websites have been, to put it bluntly, uninspiring. They often existed in the shadow of corporate or council websites, lacking the vibrancy and user engagement needed to truly reflect the invaluable resources and community hub that libraries represent.

However, after a bold and captivating rebranding effort, Goulburn Valley Libraries (GV Libraries) knew it was time to break free from the mundane and offer their community a digital experience that mirrored the warmth and accessibility of their physical spaces.

This is where Mad Web Skills came into the picture. We were tasked with the exciting mission of transforming GV Libraries' online presence into a vibrant, user-friendly, and inviting website that truly resonated with the library's newfound identity and purpose.


  • Content Management System, powered by Mad Web Skills' own DevFlare platform.
  • Integration with the SirsiDynic library catalogue software platform, and a portal to GVL's online digital borrowing services for eBooks, audiobooks and streaming video platforms.

  • A directory of library branch locations, with Google Maps integration and related upcoming calendar events.
  • Email contact form.
  • Responsive mobile-friendly layout.
