The parliamentary library has occupied the building since 1901, when it was known as the General Assembly Library. Other occupants have included government departments, Bellamy’s, and members of Parliament.The library building was damaged by fire in 1907. The ornate main foyer was again damaged by fire in 1992. It has since been completely restored and refurbished.
