Ways you can support your State Library

State Library of Queensland supports the cultural heritage, education, literacy and lifelong learning of all Queenslanders.

The President’s Circle is a valued group of donors who share an interest in Queensland’s cultural history, and a belief in the importance of free public access to knowledge and learning for all Queenslanders. They help State Library to go above and beyond in our services by helping to create a permanent funding source by growing our capital base through annual donations of $1000 for a minimum of three years.

Donors enjoy in-depth connection with State Library’s specialist staff and the multitude of stories contained in State Library’s unique collections via annual President’s Circle events.
