For thousands of years, the Kaurna people of the Adelaide plains have told their stories and kept their memories of this place alive in their oral tradition. Today, a greeting stone by Uncle Lewis O’Brien of the Kaurna people at the entrance to the State Library welcomes visitors to a place that also keeps the memories of the state alive.
We encourage members of the community, organisations, and businesses to consider donating material for appraisal, especially South Australiana, to increase the depth and range of the library's collections.
Learn how we are preserving and conserving the State Library's collection for future generations to explore and research.
