State Library of Western Australia 

We want to welcome you to our new website

The role of the State Library is to collect, preserve and share WA stories. We do this for all Western Australians, which is why the new website is so important. WA is a big state. While the Library is easily accessible for those living in Perth, visiting us and exploring our collection in person is not always easy for those in the regions. Our website brings our collection to you, no matter where you live.

The new site focuses on sharing stories through images from our catalogue. It's easy to navigate, but if you do get lost, use the search function - it’s fantastic.

Please take some time to look around. We are still testing the new site and welcome your feedback. There is an online feedback form linked at the top of every page. If you love it – tell us. If you find there are errors – tell us. If you have ideas on how to improve the site – tell us. All feedback is appreciated.
