State Library of Victoria – One of the First Free Public Libraries in the World – Melbourne Walking Tour – Part 2

The photo above is the interior design of the dome ceiling in La Trobe Reading Room inside State Library Victoria in Melbourne CBD. The photo above was just a sneak shot that I had while wandering inside the library.
