The State Library of South Australia’s core purpose is to collect and maintain the documented history of the state and provide access that connects people with our resources and world knowledge. To support these, we contribute to the wellbeing of the state by providing culturally enriching opportunities to our communities.

The State Library is part of the Department for the Premier and Cabinet, led by Premier The Hon. Steven Marshall MP.
