Change to the State Library Retrieval Service

Date: 1 July 2016

We have made some changes to our retrieval service.


Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays:

  • The last retrieval request time for these days will be at 6pm, for delivery by 6.30pm.

Thursdays & Fridays:

  • The last retrieval request time for these days will be at 5pm, for delivery by 5.30pm.


No retrievals will occur on Saturdays or Sundays effective from Friday 22 July 2016.

  • To be available on the weekend, requests for material from storage must be placed by 10.00am on the preceding Friday. Please specify that the items are for use on the weekend.

Read our Retrieval information for full details.

The joint impact of budget pressures and the steady decline in retrieval rates over the past several years has prompted this decision. The redesign of the service responds to these changing conditions while making every effort to minimize the impact on our customers.

Our opening hours remain the same.
