What’s got us talking

Aboriginal Lives Matter collecting call-out

We are currently collecting posters, protest signs, flyers and mail-outs connected to the Aboriginal Lives Matter events in NSW. 

The world turned upside down

A punchbowl made of silver is an unusual piece of tableware to commission for a three-year voyage in search of the elusive Great Southern Land.

A true place of belonging

As part of our vision to be 'A library where you don't need to fit in to belong', the State Library has published a new Accessibility Action Plan for 2020-23.

Keeping readers safe when visiting the Library

Here's what we're doing for the health and safety of our staff, readers and visitors.
