The State Library of Western Australia is reviewing the collections and events/programs. We would like your ideas about how we can share stories and information, and what we should collect now and in the future. This survey is anonymous and will only take about eight minutes to complete. We appreciate your help.

Good news, the recent COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. This means that you will  no longer be required to wear a mask in the library, although you might choose to. It also means there will be no two hour time limit and the maximum number of people in the library at one time has been increased to 900.

You will, however, still be required to register for contact tracing either manually or via the SafeWA app. Thank you for being so cooperative and thoughtful over the last two weeks – we appreciate it.
