Queenslands first State library was built in Williams Street in 1986 It is a fine old building that has been repurposed and now the State library lives across the river at South bank, and was built in 1988. State Library of Queensland, mainly through the John Oxley Library, has a vital role in preserving and sharing Queensland's history by collecting contemporary and retrospective content that chronicles events, people, places and ideas that continue to shape Queensland.  is the main reference and research library provided to the people of the State of Queensland, Australia, by the state government. Its legislative basis is provided by the Queensland Libraries Act 1988

I was sitting in North Quay Ferry Terminal and sketching the Queensland State Library across the river.

 There was a heatwave in Brisbane-town today so only three of us came out.  Th rest elected to go with the other group into an airconditioned environment :D The Brisbane City Sketchers are a tough lot ;) and we know the best places to be on a high heat day.  At North Quay, being right on the river, there were heavenly breezes blowing, and we had a most enjoyable day.
