Come down to The Corner, one of State Library's spaces for children and families, and play your way through our interactive environment, carefully prepared for children to make discoveries and experience new things.

Cardboard castles on now

Come on an adventure through Cardboard Castles at The Corner and explore elements of design and construction where form and function meet fancy and fun.

Designed by artist Jennifer Marchant, Cardboard Castles was inspired by one of the largest photographic collections of Australian housing which is held here at State Library: the Frank and Eunice Corley collection, 65,000 black and white house images documenting suburban landscapes and the shapes, patterns and lines of our local architecture.
