Established in 1854, the Prahran Mechanics’ Institute (PMI) is a community owned and run library specialising in the history of Victoria, Australia.
The library aims to collect published resources about every locality in Victoria and every aspect of the history of the State. It is the only collection of its kind in Australia that is available for loan to the general public.
The PMI is also the home of Special Collections of the Mechanics’ Institutes of Victoria, the Cinema & Theatre Historical Society, and the Australian Railway Historical Society (Vic.).
