Nice old building, with warm in the winther, and good place to read a well written book.

A lot of student from the city read her every day. You could also just drop by and see the La Trobe reading room, as it is very pretty.

The library is massive and the architecture within is stunning. I love how they have brought together modern day technology and data with traditional novels and texts.

The reading room - you think the public aren't allowed in these sorts of hallowed halls, but the state library is open access, nice gallery collection of old paintings of melbourne town too.

A stately jewel graciously welcoming all. My favourite Melbourne landmark encapsulates everything that is great about Australia. Spend hours but preferably days.

Breathtaking amount of books - and the paintings on early Melbourne are worth seeing. Good location for access to main Melbourne shopping area.
