Celebrating 30 years of the Library Foundation

This year, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the State Library of NSW Foundation.

Over the years, the Foundation has delivered a rich and sustained record of support, most recently supporting the Michael Crouch Family Galleries, John B Fairfax Learning Centre and The Children’s Library.

The Foundation has provided ongoing funds for important acquisitions, conservation work, exhibitions, fellowships, awards and educational programs.
