State Library of Victoria
September 2 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
MEMBER MEETING SEPTEMBER 2
When MSWPS members visit the State Library of Victoria (SLV) on Thursday, September 2 they will experience the latest renovations which have improved access and functionality for visitors, students and their families. The architecture alone makes a visit worthwhile, but should you have a day to spare, the SLV is a good investment in time, especially for those who like exploring books and archives. A librarian is always handy to help.
Various galleries exhibit historic and modern artworks and there are wonderful displays of books and items of historical interest including Ned Kelly’s armour. Every level has a story to tell. It is an ideal outing for grandchildren with specially tailored activities on the agenda.
Tessa Wallis, MSWPS vice president, is honoured to have two of her works in bronze installed at the SLV. The Oldmeadow Memorial is at the entrance to the Latrobe reading room while The Man from Ironbark may have been moved during the recent renovations. It will be interesting to see.
Mr Tulk’s restaurant at the SLV serves coffee and cakes, delicious breakfasts, lunches and wine to make our library adventure even more enjoyable.
You are encouraged to join us on Thursday September 2nd. Enter the date in your diary. Confirmation of meeting point and time will be emailed to members. Friends are welcome. Tessa Wallis
The state Library is open between 10 am – 6pm. Keep an eye on notices for a group meet up time.
