Find yourself in the Library without leaving home
Share your portrait on Instagram using the hashtag #NewSelfWales and it will become part of our new interactive exhibition #NewSelfWales. Your image will appear on the walls of our Galleries alongside thousands from the State Library’s collection and from people around NSW, and ultimately become part of history as the Library captures the contemporary face of NSW in 2018
