Let your child’s creativity run wild with workshops, performances and activities throughout the Library this summer!
Meet us in the Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter for a silent disco, where kids can listen to pop music, nature calls, or city noises and respond by drawing what they hear.
Shake it off in the Create Quarter with hip-hop dance classes and drop-in drumming workshops.
Explore the joy of laughter on the Forecourt with roving children’s clown, Lumi Bloomi.
Create texture and technology soundscapes with help from Polyglot Theatre or take part in decorating Library tote bags in the Ian Potter Queen’s Hall.
Enjoy a self-directed craft activity or make your own musical instrument from recycled materials in the Information Centre.
See some of your favourite classic stories and comedic fables come to life in the Magic Journey show with The Flying Bookworm! Kids will join The Flying Bookworm actors as they take centre stage in a storytelling performance that will ignite their imagination and inspire a new love of literature.
This performance will take place at 1pm in the Conversation Quarter. The cost is $20 per child, and carers are free.
