The Wangaratta Library is part of the High Country Library Corporation which incorporates library services for the Benalla Rural City, Alpine and Mansfield Shires and the Rural City of Wangaratta.
In 2007 the Wangaratta Rural City Council entered into a joint venture with Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE and Wangaratta Library, a branch of the High Country Library Corporation, and now delivers an integrated service to both the public and GoTAFE staff and students.
