Companion Card

The State Library of New South Wales is a proud affiliate of the Companion Card program. For any ticketed events,  an extra ticket is issued at no cost for people who require the assistance of a companion or carer . If you have a Companion Card please let our Events staff know when booking tickets so that a second ticket can be arranged.
