Summer Festival at State Library of Queensland

summer festival state library of queensland

Brisbane Kids can join the State Library of Queensland for a summer of fun at their annual Summer Festival! With activities for children of all ages, there will be something new and exciting for your family to explore.

Bring children under 5 and explore our Jarjum Stories exhibition or dance and sing at a free First 5 Forever session.

Children 8-14 years can engineer a robot racer using Lego, challenge themselves with a treasure hunt and join a game of comic book scrabble.

Teens can spark their imagination and meet new people with dedicated Dungeons and Dragons workshops, fabric printing, exploring new worlds in a VR (virtual reality) environment. Plus, teens can design their own spaces and objects, using creative and technology equipment at The Edge, including sewing machines and the laser cutter.

There will also be a fun evening especially for families on Friday 20 December where families can explore the exhibition and activity spaces, play together, share stories, make and create, and experience the State Library after dark.
