We are happy to announce that The State Library of New South Wales has an new exhibition called “Off the Shelf” which will run from November 2nd 2019 until the 22nd March 2020.
All books published in NSW, and many from beyond, live in the State Library of New South Wales — millions of them in a maze of shelves underground. A digital experience in the galleries, Off the Shelf encourages the reader to virtually browse the Library’s book collection and uncover the many intriguing, perplexing and playful volumes waiting to be read. From bodice rippers to banksia trees, cats to catafalques, turnips to teleology — whatever you’re into, we’ve got a book for it.
