State Library Bricktoria

Eat, sleep, build, and repeat!

This summer, we’ve teamed up with Brickman to create State Library Bricktoria! 

Join us for a whole series of events celebrating the LEGO® brick. Go on a treasure hunt across the Library to find all the pieces you need to make our very own Library build. Help us build two giant mystery mosaics and watch as Brickman’s team take on the challenge of building State Library Victoria out of LEGO® bricks. 

You’ll also get to meet Brickman – the only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere.

But the fun isn’t just for the kids. Young at heart fans can get involved with our Bricks & beats with the Brickman party.

From first-time brick builders to long-time creators, there’s something for everyone at the Library this summer. Grab your tickets now before they sell out.
