Goal four: A library for the future


A sustainable business model enables the Library to deliver cultural, social and economic benefits to the State. Every dollar invested by government generates more than a $3.20 benefit to the community.


We ensure every dollar invested by government is maximised and delivers significant benefits to the State.

We invest in our people, making our expert workforce as productive and capable as they can be.

Every decision supports the outcomes we seek to deliver.

We leverage government’s investment by generating own-sourced revenue.

We capitalise on our unique and incredible assets, ensuring that they deliver exceptional experiences.

Every aspect of our operation is as effective as possible.
