Mitchell Wing, State Library

David Scott Mitchell (1836 - 1907) was a book collector. He offered his collection of Australiana to the people of New South Wales on the condition that a new building be erected to house the collection as a separate library.

Work on the Mitchell Wing started in 1906 and was completed in 1910. It houses the Mitchell Library reading rooms, work areas and galleries. It is part of the State Library of NSW.
