ANZAC Day Public Holiday

All National Library reading rooms will be closed on Anzac Day, Wednesday 25 April.  Regular reading room hours will resume on Thursday 26 April. See our public holiday opening hours for more information.

School and teacher program

Bring your students to one of our curriculum-based school programs for years 5 to 12.

The programs use our exhibitions, collections and reading rooms as a springboard to find out more about Australian history and culture. Students critically interpret texts and learn search methods to understand historical and contemporary events and issues.

We also run a teacher professional development program.
