Brisbane's Best Libraries

by Sally Foster (follow)
A library can be more than just books

We are so lucky in Brisbane to have access to some incredible public libraries. A library holds more than just books too. As a Mum, they can be a source of friendship, entertainment and education for both you and your children.

From rhyme time, story time and reading nooks, these libraries boast everything from cafes with excellent coffees, to school holiday programs that are free and chock full of resources to keep the whole family happy.

Brisbane Crochet Club will host two very special kids crochet classes during the winter holidays that are perfect for children who would love to learn a new hobby.
You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.
Here are some of the best libraries in Brisbane. If you think your local library is just as great, let us know so we can add it in.
