What people are saying:

The Australian Library is the largest library in Canberra. It has a huge collection of books and many masterpieces by local Australian painters. There is also a small museum in the library, which mainly records the history of Australia. Some of the materials are very precious and worthy of everyone to watch and borrow.

    The Treasures Gallery is worth a look. The Library though is not a must see unless there is a good exhibition.

    The current Library building on the banks of Lake Burley Griffin was opened in 1968 and, including its two offsite collection storage centres, has a collection of over ten million books, manuscripts a...
