As COVID-19 continues to challenge our operation and delivery of public services the State Library has responded decisively in the interests of both public and staff safety. The following services and areas of the State Library are now suspended as of 8pm 17 March 2020:

  • The Reference Library
  • Information Desk
  • Group Meeting Rooms
  • Family History 
  • Reading Room 

The Mortlock Wing, Institute Building and Exhibition spaces are still open to the public.

Please note new opening times will be 10am to 6pm until further notice.

All State Library public events have been suspended until further notice.

More information about the State Library’s shift to an online service during these challenging times will be promoted as soon as possible. Our priority is to maintain our professional services to all our valued customers.  

We apologise for any inconvenience. Please check our website,  Twitter or Facebook for regular updates.
