State Library of Queensland

by Sally Foster (follow)
The State Library of Queensland has weekly programs designed just for children, with music, art and books brought to life through imagination play

Located in the Cultural Precinct of South Bank, the State Library is chock full of incredible books and resources, and has weekly events held just for kids.

While most libraries have a children's section, the State Library has a really special and unique one. 'The Corner' is opened Monday to Sunday from 10am to 3pm and has a program for children under eight years of age.

Running from 3 March to until 30 November 2018, the current program in The Corner is called Children's Picture Diaries. Designed by a team of artists, it brings to life the artwork from some collections of popular children's books by using artwork, books, toys, materials and other resources. The aim is to create a place for children and families to create and play together.

If music is more your little ones thing, another weekly event held in 'The Corner' is Hickory Dickory Rock. With music by Tim Jackman, Hickory Dickory Rock is a singing, dancing and nursery rhyme hour held every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 11am to 12pm. Be sure to check the State Library of Queensland Facebook page for any last minute changes.

If you have a little baby and are looking for something a bit quieter, but still fun and a great developmental experience, check out the First Five Forever Baby Play at The Corner. Held from 9:15 to 9:45 every Thursday, the session are designed for babies from 0 to 12 months. The sessions include baby paced play, rhyme and shared stories and is a lovely bonding experience.
