The Corner

The Corner wild things

Come down to The Corner and play your way through our interactive environment carefully prepared for children from birth through to eight years. Through art making, facilitated play, sharing stories and creative conversations, children and families can interact with artists and each other to creatively engage in the serious business of play.

We have a new theme every few months with fresh games, toys and books. Our current theme is Little Antarctic Division, based on “Sophie Scott goes South”, by award winning Australian children’s author Alison Lester.

A team of artist and designers have created the Little Antarctic Division in the Corner using artworks, photographs from the author and the State Library’s collection, books, toys, materials and other resources, including an interactive digital installation, and a polar tent direct from the Australian Antarctic Division.

The Corner is open daily from 10am to 3pm, and you can join us every morning between until 12noon for a play date with purpose with one of our arts-workers.

Find children’s books for all ages in the Library Shop.
