Family Sunday

Join us for a full day of family fun at the State Library on Sunday 23 February 2020, 10am to 3pm.

Step into our garden and explore the plants, flowers and crawling critters living there. Invite your friends and spend the day – there will be things to look at, things to make and lots of things to do with your family. Don’t miss workshops with celebrated children’s author/illustrator Tania McCartney. Join an adventure tour around the fabulous exhibitions, creative activities in the John B Fairfax Learning Centre and special story time sessions for under 5’s. Make sure you leave some time to visit our beautiful new Children’s Library.

Photographs will be taken at this event. If you do not wish to be photographed, please notify staff.
