Tim Fairfax Newspaper Reading Room

Tim Fairfax

The Tim Fairfax Newspaper Reading Room provides convenient access to the State Library of Queensland's wide range of newspapers and was named after Tim Fairfax in appreciation of his generous support in the creation of the space.

The room is located on Level 3 of the State Library building, and offers views of the city, river and South Bank Parklands. Surrounding the reading room is a poetic wooden sculpture suggesting the rolling presses of traditional newspaper production.
