Update: Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the State Library will be closed from 16 March – including StartSpace.
Applications for membership are still open, and we look forward to welcoming you to the space in due course.
We’re sad to close our doors but feel this is the best preventative measure to support the health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers, as well as the broader community.
