Openbook

Openbook is for people who love to read.

Openbook is the Library's quarterly magazine. It was previously known as SL magazine, before we gave it a makeover.  

Inside each issue you'll find stories that are inspiring, thought-provoking and surprising. We're working with established and emerging writers with diverse perspectives on literature, art, photography, history, science, architecture, popular culture and topical issues. Our library insiders will take you behind the scenes to reveal weird and wonderful finds from the collection. 

Expect a mix of feature articles, news, commentary, photo-essays, interviews, fiction, poetry, reviews, recipes, trivia and even DIY projects. 

So, if you love books and libraries and are curious about the world inside and outside of them - subscribe today.
