Foundation appeal

The State Library of Victoria Foundation holds special fundraising appeals to help the Library acquire, conserve and display significant collection items.

Our most recent appeal reached in excess of its $100,000 target to purchase two illustrated Persian manuscripts. These magnificent manuscripts will be added to the Library's Rare Books Collection, to be treasured by Victorians for generations to come.
