The state government unveiled a new exhibition that highlights the historic significance of education in Tasmania.
The exhibition is named Then, Now and Beyond.
It is aimed at showcasing the stories around Tasmania as the first state to commit to compulsory education in 1868, the 150 year anniversary of which was in 2018.
Minister for Education Jeremy Rockliff said he was delighted to open an exhibition at Launceston Library that highlights the stories and experiences of Tasmanians in public education.
"Generations of Tasmanians have benefited from the provision of formal education over our 150 year history including two of our ambassadors of education Susan Wigg and Mali Davis," Mr Rockliff said.
"The displays will share stories from the rich heritage that is collected and housed at libraries around the state and in the Tasmania Archives and Heritage Office collections."
The exhibition will start at Launceston Library before touring across the state during the year.
