Tables and chairs
There is a dedicated kids corner at Balmain Library. As soon as you enter the library, turn right in the main books section and follow the signs to the kids area. It is heaven, and is attended by a staff member. There is an abundance of books, as well as toys and kids decorations. A real kid-friendly space. Tables and chairs are available, and there is a great mini-balcony area to soak in the sun.
The outdoor area
Your youngster can enjoy reading a book (or just chilling out) on a bean bag as well. Next door is the section for teenagers, known as a chill out room where bean bags are also available.
