Festival Village


Description: The Lawn Library is a temporary offering as part of the Sydney Festival. Foster a love of books by letting your child choose one to take home (and keep!) or read in the appealing space in the heart of the Festival Village. Bring in a book to donate in the book swap if you wish.

Plenty of chairs and games if you wish to linger.

While a lot of regularly libraries stop their story time activities over the school holidays, catering for older children at this time, the Lawn Library has a range of events.

Twilight Storytime: Tuesday 21 January 6pm, Aimed at all ages.

Library Kids January (Bilingual): Wednesday 22 January 11.30am with facilitator, Pam Ho. Storytime in both Mandarin and English.

Library Kids: Friday 24 January 11.30am and Saturday 25 January 11.30am. Storytime fun (and craft) for the 3-5 year olds.

Has the lawn library stayed open longer than the Sydney Festival or have you put in an article for an event that has closed. Belinda
