Libraries Tasmania


Tasmania opened one of Australia’s first libraries in 1825 and was the first state in Australia to provide library and archive services.  Libraries Tasmania is comprised of the State Library of Tasmania, the Tasmanian Archives, 45 public libraries, the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts and the Office of the State Archivist.  We provide modern library and archive services that are accessible and inclusive.  We welcome people of all ages, interests and needs, offering opportunities for lifelong learning, social interactions and cultural inspiration, our services and programs contribute to our State’s growth, with an estimated economic impact of over $130 million annually.
