Visit us and Let’s Play House  

The Corner at State Library of Queensland (State Library) is a play based space for under 8s. Let’s Play House is the new Corner theme which is reset three times each calendar year to activate play based learning with fresh and engaging experiences for young patrons. Theme changes provide an opportunity for new knowledge, interactions and vocabulary for children.

Let’s Play House is inspired by the home in the centre of the Lifestyle exhibition on now at the State Library. The theme explores all the ways play happens inside the home. Developed by Young People and Families and the First 5 Forever teams, Let’s Play House celebrates the First 5 Forever message to Talk, Play, Sing and Read with your child every day.
