Established in 1896, the State Library of Queensland is recognised as a bold and adventurous 21st century library that plays a lead role in serving all Queenslanders. As an inclusive and welcoming place for all, the State Library is a trusted source for information, and is a place for intellectual freedom, acting also as a cornerstone of democracy and custodian of Queensland’s memory. The institution is a ‘knowledge bank’ and vital community resource, as much a physical as well as a virtual place for sharing, learning, collaborating, and creation.

The State Library also produces a diverse program of events and exhibitions for, by, and with diverse communities. Additionally, it encourages the public to engage with its collections and services, and helps foster connections between individuals and groups through various projects.
