A few of our favourite things: Treasures from the Collections of the State Library of SA

Did you know that the State Library of South Australia has over 50 kilometres of storage? It's filled with material from all over the world - from Antarctica to Ethiopia, from Glenelg to Hindley Street.

It is no surprise that State Library staff have an intimate knowledge of our collections, but that doesn't stop each of us having one or two, or three or four, of our favourite things.

Join us as we share with you some of our favourite treasures from our collections, including; a corset, a brass die for upholstery manufacturing of Holden Brougham, a mud brick from Ur - the second oldest specimen of writing in our collection, and a piece of hide from the cow owned by Governor Hindmarsh. Discover the intriguing stories behind these and more of our favourites in this free exhibition.

To help you navigate the exhibition we have created the following guide and map:

Sometimes we are still surprised by what the public ask us about; and what we have in our collections to help their query. You help us to know our collections better.

We look after South Australia's heritage for you, so you can use it to find your own stories.

Plan your visit and view the Library's open hours for this exhibition.

A few of the objects from this exhibition are viewable online.
