The Victorian Gothic design of this building is Thomas Turnbull's. Built in 1899 of brick, cement and plaster, it survived the 1907 fire which destroyed the adjacent wooden Parliament Building and other surrounding structures which formed the General Assembly buildings.
Today the Parliamentary Library houses over half a million books related to the laws, legislation, and government of New Zealand. The International Documents Room receives publications from overseas countries and organisations such as the United Nations. Staff working in this building are mainly researchers working on material to assist Members of Parliament and Parliamentary staff.
