Current exhibition

A few of our favourite things

Treasures from the State Library  of South Australia's collections

Did you know that the State Library has over 50 kilometres of storage? Filled with material from all over the world - from Antarctica to Ethiopia, from Glenelg to Hindley Street.

It is no surprise that our staff have an intimate knowledge of our collections, but that doesn't stop each of us have one or two (or three or four), favourite things.

And sometimes we can still be surprised by what the public asks us about, and what we have in our collections to help them.
You help us know our collections better.

We will look after South Australia's heritage for you. You can use it to find your own stories.
