Sydney Heritage (4)

The Shakespeare Room of the State Library of NSW celebrates the 300th anniversary of the poet's death (1916), the room is richly embellished with Tudor motifs by woodcarver Charles Sherline, and features a plaster ceiling modelled on Cardinal Wolsey's closet at Hampton Court Palace. The Seven Ages of Man (As You Like It) are depicted in the stained glass windows. It is not ordinarily open to the public but may be hired as a meeting or function venue.

The State Library's 'Shakespeare Room' is worth visiting and it's open to the public every Tuesday from 10am to 4pm. It's free and one of the Library's volunteers is on hand to reveal the wonderful story about how the room originated and the beautiful stained glass windows depicting the 'Seven ages of man'.
