The Library's reading rooms are open. Before you visit, please read Visiting the Library. 


The Library is committed to making its collection available to all, and that includes the loan of paintings, maps, photographs, rare books, manuscripts and objects for exhibition in Australian and international institutions. This is the biggest institutional loan in the Library’s history! 

Find out more about the behind the scenes preparation for our exhibition loans program.

See them all on show at the National Gallery of Victoria, from 15 March until 15 July 2018. Find more details here.
