For Families & Children
Better Beginnings has been developed by the State Library as a universal family literacy program for children from birth to five years and their families. It works through strong partnerships to encourage and support parents as their child's first teacher.
For more information about the programs check Better Beginnings.
The Place is open when the library is open - come along to share stories, look at original picture book art, and explore online stories on the computers using Tumblebooks.
We also have fun activities every school holidays, including our Connections@The Place for children up to 5 years.
For more information, check What's On The Place.
