Visit us and Let’s Play House
The Corner at State Library of Queensland (State Library) is a play based space for under 8s. Let’s Play House is the new Corner theme which is reset three times each calendar year to activate play based learning with fresh and engaging experiences for young patrons. Theme changes provide an opportunity for new knowledge, interactions and vocabulary for children.

Visit the Corner this school holidays and engage in a range of free activities for under 8’s. The complete Winter holiday program with all the details is here.
Let’s Play House is inspired by the home in the centre of the Lifestyle exhibition on now at the State Library. The theme explores all the ways play happens inside the home. Developed by Young People and Families and the First 5 Forever teams, Let’s Play House celebrates the First 5 Forever message to Talk, Play, Sing and Read with your child every day.

At no other time is it more crucial to have a secure and loving home environment than in the formative years of childhood. For small children, their home is the centre of their world. It’s where their first steps are taken, first words spoken, and where the most important people live. The home is full of opportunities for children’s playful learning and Let’s Play House looks to amplify, and embellish the everyday to capture the imagination of all.

Let’s Play House is a celebration of our homes and the wonderful and wacky play adventures we can have with our favourite people within them.
The Corner is open every day from 10am – 3pm. Young people and families are invited to visit this visually stimulating space and experience the Corner for themselves. While you’re here, why not join a facilitated arts activity with one of our arts workers on site daily from 10am-12noon? The Corner at State Library is the perfect place to enjoy this school holidays.
