How much does an Onsite program cost?

All State Library education programs are free.

All equipment and materials will also be provided by the state Library free of charge.

What do I need to do before I visit?

Access pre-visit information at Plan your Visit (of particular interest is the Metro section - Group Booking for Primary School Groups) and When you Visit.

will assist you in the development of your Excursion Risk Management Plan.

Access pre-visit information for your program from the relevant program page on our website.

Ensure all attending adults receive and are familiar with the pre-visit information for them on the program page of our website.

What will I need to bring?

Bring all food and drink in a group crate.

Medication may be carried by the adult supervisor in a backpack.

To assist in the building of relationships, teachers, attending adults and students are encouraged to wear name tags.

What technology will I need?

It is recommended that a teacher brings a device to access a QR code reader, survey and relevant links.

What happens on arrival?

We suggest you arrive 15 minutes prior to the time of the booking.
This gives time for students to eat and access toilet facilities located on the ground floor behind the lift or on 1st floor alongside the Treasures Wall.

State Library staff will meet your group at the designated area prior to your program.

A good space to organise groupings with students is in the space next to the Treasures Wall or in the Library forecourt.

Where can we gather if the weather is inclement?

A shelter area is located on the eastern side of the building between the State Library and the Museum's armoury building. Alternatively, gather in the State Library's Hub (Ground Floor).

Where can we eat lunch?

We recommend the State Library forecourt outside the glass entry foyer, the South Australian Museum lawns to the east of the State Library or the lawns next to the Torrens Parade Ground.

How can I provide feedback?

We value your feedback. A link is provided on the webpage for your program linking to a short survey.
