State Library Of Queensland, Brisbane

4.7
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Brisbane trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • And when compared to other states probably best not too! Multi level modern building with temporary spaces etc. It does not have the luxury of the historic buildings in Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide. ...  more »
  • We have always searched for libraries during our journey and we have to say: this is really great! We need Wi-Fi to work, a Café for coffee and some snacks, and a toilet. All can provide the State Library of Queensland. But the best: you have unbelievably plenty of space and tranquility, to focus and well what to get. So to work, we can only recommend the library!

  • a beautiful library in a beautiful building. there are small nooks for studying and bookable group rooms. plenty of interesting events.
  • I really like the lecture program offered by the library where you have chances to listen and talk to the thought leaders of the world. Attached is a few photos taken on British mathematician Sir Timothy Gower' speech on open access to scholarly publication.
  • Would recommend the 2nd or 3rd floors when using the computers. You can remain logged on for 3 hours and are considerably quieter than the ground floor.
  • Fantastic place to study, highly recommend it if you need a good area to focus.
  • Sensational resource, I have done enormous amounts of research here & the staff NEVER tire of my requests, particularly Mary, you are a treasure !
