​​Unseen beneath the Library's Macquarie Street building are five levels of storage with over 80 kilometres of shelving. This curator led tour takes you into the very heart of the Library to look at rare gems and the inner workings of one of Australia's major cultural institutions.  

This initiative is proudly supported by the NSW Government through the Culture Up Late Program.
