The Model School Library is a collection of around 2,000 titles carefully chosen in the late 1930s and early 1940s by staff of the State Library of New South Wales, Macquarie Street, Sydney to form a model Library for Australian schools. This Library now forms part of Rare books and special collections.

The above picture comes from The tailor of Gloucester, one of the books in the Model School Library.
