state library of victoria play pod

Step away from the hustle and bustle of the City and inside to a quiet space of tranquility. Don't let the 'quiet' put you off as children are very welcome in the library and have their own dedicated play space. The fabulous "Play Pod" is where children can play, do crafts, dress up, read books and more. The Play Pod has a different theme each month based on a children's book.

It's a great spot to bunker down for a few hours on a cold, wet or windy day or get out of the heat and take refuge in air-conditioned comfort!
