Although the seating sections in this top-class facility are quite comfortable, State Library Of Queensland is far more than just a place to read books. You’ll discover a strong reference section, access to computers, and workshop areas. A digital culture center called The Edge offers Internet training. The library houses the 1892 Manifesto of the Queensland Labour Party to the people of Queensland and The Margaret Lawrie Collection of Torres Strait Island Materials, both recognized by UNESCO’s prestigious Memory of the World Australian Register.

  • Yesterday we were looking for central place to record some of our voice-over work for a client. We all met at the SLQ and found the perfect spot on Level 4 in the John Oxley Library. The SLQ is perfect for meeting rooms - access to the internet, clean, and quiet. If you're a small business on a budget, you should check out their resources.
  • I came here in the peak of QLD summer to escape the non-air conditioned house I was living in. Free WiFi, a few Cafe's and aircon are the selling points here. ( " The Library Cafe " has easily the worst Iced Latte i've ever had ) The first level typically has a few people sleeping on couches, and a few more charging their devices via the wall outlets. Other than that, most people are here to study or use the WiFi quietly. Sometimes you'll find someone brings in kids and the kids have a bit of a dummy spit, but that's most places you go anyway!
  • Nice quiet place! Great views, wifi and lots of cafés around, when you need a break.
  • Sometimes hosts really cool free events, and just an awesome place overall. I wish it was closer to home...
  • I love this library. I love the views of the river, the free wifi and easy access to resources. I can work from home given the great online access, but the silence of the upper levels promotes concentration. Want a break? There is GOMA, the Art Gallery and great coffee at your fingertips.
