The State Library of Western Australia is a valued cultural institution that collects, preserves, and treasures Western Australian history. Our heritage collections represent the richness and diversity of the Western Australian community and encourage people to understand our past, discover new ideas, and to shape the future. Stories from the past, the present, and those yet to unfold are valued by the State Library as a vibrant record of our shared history and our emerging future.
Visitors to our building or online services will find vibrant and welcoming spaces for learning, recreation and enterprise. Our exhibitions share Western Australia’s unique stories and showcase everyday heroes from our history. The Story Place Gallery features artwork from children’s picture books to inspire and captivate younger audiences, and workshops, talks, tours and family-oriented events create opportunities for discovery and learning. Through the use of innovative technologies and services, we offer exciting and fulfilling experiences.
Our goal is to treasure stories, inspire possibilities and strengthen communities.
