Library on the Lawn

Location Library forecourt
328 Swanston Street

We’re extending the embrace of the Library onto the lawn for a Covid-safe celebration of summer!

For six weeks you’re invited to relax and read in an urban oasis across the Library’s upper forecourt, featuring coloured outdoor beanbags protected by a canopy of large umbrellas. Meet your friends on the grass and BYO books!

Plus, over two weekends in February you can enjoy extra free family-friendly outdoor programming including workshops, roving performances, face painting, and a coffee cart by Mr Tulk (available until 4pm).

Enjoy Library on the Lawn from 10am to 6pm every day from 20 January to 28 February.

Please note: In the event of wet weather bean bags won’t be available. 

Explore the program for Sat 20 & Sun 21 February

If you’re feeling unwell on the day, please do not attend.

We are complying with Victorian health guidelines to protect everyone who attends this event.
