For children & families

Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter

Supported by Gandel Foundation, the Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter is a purpose-built space for children and families to read, learn and play, with an associated program of activities. 

What's on

The Library offers a yearly calendar of programs and events for children and families.

Story Talks

A series of interviews with children's favourite authors, where we ask them the questions that kids really want to know!

Designed to foster a lifelong love of stories, each Story Talks program is jam-packed with ideas, inspiration and fun, as well as a rich activity to generate creative writing. 

Story Talks is supported by Gandel Foundation.
