Library Closures

Closed

In line with Government direction, the State Library of Western Australia (SLWA) is now closed to the public, along with all other libraries in Western Australia.

In a press release, Duncan Ord OAM, Director General of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries has stated:

“At 12.00pm today [Monday 23 March], as part of a nationally consistent approach, all cultural and art institutions in Western Australia will close in the interests of public safety in response to COVID-19. This includes art galleries, theatres, museums, and libraries across the State. While the institutions will be closed to the general public, staff at these institutions will continue to work in the buildings.”

The State Library of Western Australia has an information page with details of resources you can access on line. You may also want to visit your local library’s website to see what they are able to offer during this time.
