State Library of Queensland

by Sally Foster (follow)
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.

It is a place where children can explore and engage in creative hands-on play with online games and reading activities.

The current program in The Corner is called Cardboard Castles. It is inspired by one of the largest photographic collections of Australian housing which is held here at State Library: the Frank and Eunice Corley Collection. Children can play in the towers and be inspired by the artwork.

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 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.

So come on down to the State Library and join in the fun!
