The South Perth library service began in 1894 when the former Department of Agriculture was formed and now has an extensive collection on agriculture in Western Australia.
Through the amalgamation of the department into DPIRD in 2017, the library has combined with the former Department of Fisheries library at Hillarys. The Hillarys library has a comprehensive collection of fisheries, aquaculture and aquatic science books.
