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.
