One of the best libraries in Australia. Staff are very helpful. Free WiFi, and plenty of power outlets.

Want some quiet time in a busy, brash, bold city. Go to the State Library and look at where Sydney came from. Such a journey and such knowledgeable, enthusiatic and friendly staff.

This state library is not near as impressive as the State Library of Victoria but as a place to get free WiFi and access to computers/books/mags, it is great.

I love going to the state library of NSW. It's big, its white (very ethereal) ... in fact its whole character makes you want to pick up a book even if its only to look at the pictures. The staff are always polite, friendly and helpful.

I try to go once a month at the very least. They always have great exhibitions, interesting collections. The curator there has a wonderful eye for pulling photographic exhibitions together.

If you live in Sydney and never been here, you are missing out a treat.
If you're a visitor to our fair shores please take the time to visit this unusual building.
Great little cafe just inside the main foyer, try it. It's good

it's a huge library and very quiet (woohoo!) it's a great place to study and do research, very informative and the archive is quiet huge so you should find anythign you want there.
on other floors, the library offers some exhibitions that are worth the visit. facilities are also available on board.
