We're transforming your State Library into a global cultural destination for all.
We want to ensure everyone has the opportunity to access and enjoy this much-loved Sydney landmark and the extraordinary riches within it.
Our master plan will deliver:
We're activating heritage spaces and improving access in and around our Mitchell and Macquarie Street buildings.
We’re almost doubling our gallery spaces, with inspiring physical and digital experiences which will bring to life the compelling stories and diverse voices within the Library’s collection.
We’re breaking new ground in the learning environment with this engaging, digitally rich, hands-on space for K—12 students, teachers and families.
A rooftop restaurant/function space with surrounding views of the city.
A 400-seat auditorium with better connection to the Governor Marie Bashir Reading Room
Mitchell Building floor plans
Improved access, accessible facilities, new circulation gallery and the relocation of the Sir William Dixson Research Library and Fellows Room.
Circulation gallery to provide access to the new public galleries and current galleries.
The rooftop venue provides a contemporary addition to the Library’s function, with a distinctive yet visually sympathetic addition to the existing heritage building fabric.
