Australia’s only dedicated public Children’s Library is NOW OPEN
Ipswich City Council has recently opened the country’s only dedicated Children’s Library, located on the ground floor of the new Administration Building, in the heart of the revitalised Nicholas Street Precinct.

Some of the great things you’ll find in the new library include:

  • Over 35,000 great books just for kids
  • Unique, multi-reality interactive experiences
  • Heaps of kids-focused programs and events
  • Hands-on tech adventures specially designed for children
  • And two life-sized dinosaurs suspended from the ceiling!

Mayor Teresa Harding said the purpose-built facility was about providing learning opportunities fit for the digital age and offered a library experience unlike any other in the country.

“The Ipswich Children’s Library is the latest in library thinking and design, with a focus on interactivity and engagement while young people learn, explore, and play” Mayor Harding said.
“I’m excited to welcome the city’s youngest readers into their new space and look forward to hearing their stories of wonder and delight.”

Specially designed for children from birth through to age 12, the library holds more than 35,000 items, innovative technology and digital experiences, with two life-sized dinosaurs calling the library home.
