We stopped and called in asking for directions, Which were extremely helpful. We were then offered a quick free tour, which took us into the very original older part. we were very impressed by our impromptu tour and would not have known it was there. if you are visiting Adelaide its well worth detouring and having a look.

I found the staff generally most helpful as I did research on my family's origins. The location of the library is central and easy to find.

You must check out the Mortlock Wing of the library which brings you straight into a Harry Potter scene. Kids will love it.

Duck in a take a look at the library, but make sure you visit the old wing which is basically a museum filled with interesting stories and artefacts about Adelaide's history. The architecture is brilliant as well. No charge either.
