The National Library of Australia is your library. Our collections are Australia’s largest. We cherish and care for over ten million items, including printed books and newspapers, oral histories, music, maps, photographs, paintings, objects, manuscripts, diaries, and letters.  

The story they tell is the story of Australia and Australians. Our vision for the future is to transform public access to Australian history and culture by bringing our collections online for everyone. Your generosity is helping us to make this vision a reality. 

Thank you for supporting your National Library.
