Artist's Description

National Trust of Victoria

This is the La Trobe Reading Room in the State Library of Victoria, Australia – located in the heart of Melbourne on Swanston Street.

It was designed by Norman G Peebles (1909) and is named after Governor Charles La Trobe, first lieutenant-governor of the colony of Victoria. The reading room is an octagonal space of 34.75metres in both diameter and height. It is six stories high and can house 32,000 books and 320 readers at its desks. Each floor houses a gallery and it is a beautiful, quiet and intriguing space. Well worth a visit.
