On my recent visit back to Australia I decided to explore further an ancestor with connections to 19th century military in Tasmania. The staff at the State Library could not have been more helpful to this visitor. And the air conditioning is excellent while the wifi is free. I have visited on nearly all my visits to the city and I see the cafe (a good one) has expanded at the expense of what was an excellent bookshop: a sign of the times, perhaps.
