The Frank Forde Room in the Library honours Australia`s shortest serving Prime Minister. 

Frank Forde was Prime Minister for only eight days, 6–13 July 1945, after the death of John Curtin. With unswerving loyalty to his party and its leadership, Forde was a federal parliamentarian for 24 years. For 14 years he was deputy leader of the federal parliamentary Labor Party, and for nine of those years was deputy Leader of the Opposition. Frank Forde was born in Mitchell.
