New Children’s Library

Australia’s only public Children’s Library is open! Located in the Nicholas Street Precinct, it boasts a beautiful, purpose-designed and built space for children aged 0 – 12 years to explore, learn and play.

Some of the great things you’ll find in the new library include:

  • Over 35,000 great books just for kids
  • Unique, multi-reality interactive experiences
  • Heaps of kids-focused programs and events
  • Hands-on tech adventures specially designed for children
  • And two life-sized dinosaurs suspended from the ceiling!
