 The State Library is the information heart of South Australia, located in the North Terrace Cultural Precinct and open seven days a week (excluding public holidays). Explore all three buildings: the award-winning contemporary Catherine Helen Spence Wing with its iconic glass foyer, the Mortlock Wing with its 19th century Victorian splendour, and the 1861 heritage listed Institute Building.

Enjoy free tours weekdays at 11am and 2pm. See items from the State Library's collections showcased in exhibition bays lining our magnificent heritage-listed Mortlock Chamber and the stunning Treasures Wall in the contemporary Spence Wing. You can also read the latest international newspapers and magazines, browse travel guides, and have our friendly librarians help you to find information on almost any topic.

Take advantage of free email, internet and word processing or use the self-service photocopiers and printers. Enquire at the Information Desk for colour copying, imaging and fax services.
