"The State Library of South Australia is the information collection center of South Australia. It is located in the North Terrace Cultural District and is open seven days a week (except public holidays). There are 3 buildings in the library: the award-winning contemporary Catherine Helen Spence Wing with an iconic glass foyer, the 19th-century Victorian magnificent Mortlock Wing, and the listed Mortlock Wing. Entered the Institute Building of 1861 Cultural Heritage. Huge stone pillars, golden walls, wrought iron retro railings, and glass transparent domes, all of which seem to have come out of the Harry Potter School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, made the South Australia State Library selected as one of the "World's 20 Most Beautiful Libraries". The predecessor of the State Library of South Australia was the South Australian Literacy Association founded in 1834. After several changes of name, it was changed to the current name of the State Library of South Australia in 1967. The current museum also houses the Royal Geographical Society of South Australia and the National Archives of Australia.

The electric lights in the library were installed in 1914. The Dent and Sons wall clock at the end of Figure 7 was installed in 1887. It was 50 pounds at that time, which is equivalent to today’s 3,000 US dollars. Now it needs to be wound once a week.
