The State Library is a must if you like to peruse collections and find some gems. They often have very interesting and well curated exhibitions from the collection as well. One thing that recently I found very annoying about the Library was that I attended a 5 day workshop and the organisation was awful! I did not expect that from such a great cultural institution.

Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you enjoyed discovering State Library. I would like to clarify that the State Library venues are available for hire by corporate and community groups, who organise the running of their own event. I hope you will continue to visit State Library and utilise all that we offer.

One of the most beautiful libraries around - certainly not in the classic medieval sense of endless libraries in a church like setting - rather, this is a happening place imbued with innovation.

Faces the river.

Staff are outstanding.

Congratulations.

Loved the book shop, helpful staff, great assistance. Found the rare book I was looking for and was able to read it. Good stuff.

Free wi-fi, views overlooking the river, perfect for studying and getting assignments done. Clean with different areas for different purposes, public transport close by and walk to the city.

Kids enjoyed visiting the "humungous library" and were amazed at all the different zones within where they could hideout with a good book.
It was great to see them loving books !!
