(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The State Library Of Queensland is a magnificent library. It is modern, innovative and large. There is an extensive range of books and a plethora of other sources to use for research and study. Many study areas of the library overlook the Brisbane River and the City and the whole place has a pleasing architectural design and a spacious user friendly layout, which really enhances the experience. The staff there are fantastic. They are extremely friendly and willing to help. After I signed up as a member (it only takes a few minutes, using their free WIFI) a very polite staff member kindly explained to me the process of borrowing books and all the other things I can do with my membership. On the ground floor, there is also a lovely café, library store, computers that can be used by the public and an indigenous themed study space. If you haven't been here yet, please visit as you won't regret it.
  • 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.
  • Amazing place to read or study. Being a very clean and quiet place, it's a great, productive environment.
  • 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!
  • I love this library,very modern and conducive place to do your studies and homework...really really great place to be to spend your spare time~~
