State Library of Victoria

Hi all,

I went with a friend to the State Library of Victoria a few weeks ago. This is no ordinary library – you can’t actually borrow books, it is there as a reference library and place to study or view historical work.

At 2pm they had a tour run by a volunteer called the dome tour. This was a great experience. I learnt quite a bit about the library, and explored areas I did not know existed.  Did you know all books published in Victoria must send a copy to the State Library?

The State Library is an amazing piece of architecture. Our tour guide told us the glass in the dome was actually covered for a period of time. Imagine how dark that would have been! Thankfully the dome was restored as it is beautiful!

So if you are free and in Melbourne, I highly suggest the Dome Tour at the State Library.

Cheers, Andrew
