The old library was originally established in Perth to celebrate Queen Victoria?s Golden Jubilee. Originally the library was located in the old WA Bank Building across the road which opened in 1889. In 1897 it moved to the Jubilee building and also housed the Museum and Art Gallery. Because of the tribute to Queen Victoria, the library was first called the Victoria Public Library but in 1904 was renamed the Public Library of Western Australia before being renamed again in 1955 as the State Library of Western Australia.
