The State Library of Western Australia is legislated to collect, preserve and make available the documentary history of Western Australia. 

In this, we recognise the importance of collecting and making available the story of all Western Australians no matter their cultural heritage, economic or social circumstances or beliefs. 

The Library is committed to ensuring that people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds are afforded equity and fairness in access to our collections, events, exhibitions, awards and services. 

This Multicultural Plan guides the Library’s initiatives to continuously improve access and outcomes for people with culturally and linguistically diverse needs.

If you would like to provide feedback about the plan, please contact us at or via telephone on 08 9427 3111.
