State Library of Victoria


The Library has a lot more going on than shelves of books. You can play chess, use game consoles, workshop projects with your friends, check out what's hanging in our galleries, watch films, listen to music, and browse newspapers and magazines. Check What's on for listings of our events and exhibitions.
The building itself – an icon of heritage architecture – is worth a thorough investigation. The history of the Library is evident in almost every room – there are Victorian quirks and curlicues, grand marble staircases, panes of stained glass, and hand-hewn bluestone walls.

The Library is open seven days a week, excluding some public holidays.

Friday to Sunday: 10am–6pm
