Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. From 1827, mechanics' institutes, literary institutes, athenaeums and schools of arts played an important role in the life of early Australian communities. Among their roles was the provision of libraries and reading rooms, but as community institutions they also provided lectures and adult education. The 'School of Arts' movement began in Britain in the beginning of the nineteenth century. The first School of Arts opened in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1821, with others in Glasgow and London in 1823. The first Mechanics' Institute was established in Glasgow in 1821. The first such institution in Australia was the Van Diemen's Land Mechanics' Institute, Hobart, which opened in 1827. By 1900 there were 1000 Mechanics' Institutes in Australia with memberships of between 100 and 200 people.
