Reading Room - from 3rd floor

The layout of the Reading Room furniture reflects the dome above which soars in the centre of the State Library of Victoria as a confident statement of universal knowledge.

When it opened in 1913 it was the largest building of its kind in the world, and its height and scale in a city without skyscrapers was dramatic. Inside, the rising arcades and balconies join in a glazed roof with a golden orb at its centre – like the sun, a source of light and enlightenment.
