Public Library, William Street, Brisbane - Brisbane, QLD

Public Library, William Street, Brisbane

This is one of the finest buildings in Brisbane. The free treatment of the Renaissance style gives grace to a design dignified by the Corinthian columns which form the distinctive feature of the facade. Built as a museum, it was converted to its present use in 1902, when the first free Public Library of Queensland was established. The John Oxley Memorial Library of Australian literature and history is housed in the building, and it has ensured the preservation of many records of Queensland's early days.
