We proudly stand alongside like-minded organisations who work with us to impact the lives of Queenslanders through improved literacy and digital skills, new knowledge and research through Fellowships and Awards, documenting Queensland’s esteemed business history and actively protecting our heritage collections.

As custodian of Queensland’s cultural, intellectual and social achievements, State Library is an inspiring and wondrous place.
