Book Crossing at SLQ

State Library of Queensland provides services for interstate and international visitors who may not be eligible to borrow from our collections. These visitors are able to take books home through the Book Crossing program.

There is a small collection of books in State Library's Infozone on level 1 that are marked with Book Crossing stickers. The Book Crossing program encourages readers to read, register, and release books for others to enjoy. Visitors can take a book, read it and leave it in a public place anywhere in the world for it to be picked up and read by others who do likewise.

Other services offered by State Library to visitors include free Wi-Fi and computers, printing, copying and scanning facilities. Reference Services provide information and assistance to visitors both on site and online

Come and visit the State Library of Queensland and discover all the great things they have to offer.

Book Crossing is perfect for travellers, who can pick up a book at one location, enjoy it as they travel, and leave it at a Book Crossing point at their destination. This is how the books travel, and the book's adventures are recorded via the book's BCID number on the Book Crossing website.
