Visit the Love2Read Café this summer!
The Love2Read Café will be open from Saturday 21 January – Sunday 26 February, and is situated in the canopied area out the front of the State Library. It will be filled with brightly coloured chairs and tables, and book trolleys featuring a range of reading materials for all ages and interests. There will be a range of programs and events which are free, with no bookings required.
The launch event showcases author Adam Morris and his Murder Mouse Blues Band on Friday 20 January from 4.30 – 5.30pm, then author Andrew Relph will speak about his book, Not drowning, reading on Saturday 21 January from 3.30 – 4.30pm.
For additional events, please check the events page on the website – there are hints and tips about writing, a crafternoon for families, and every Saturday visitors to the café can Play with Words borrowing a variety of word games. On Sunday afternoons at 5.00pm, classic Australian films based on books will show on the big screen. People will be able to share a quote from their favourite book on the Reading Wall inside the library.
The Café is open from Monday – Thursday (10:00am – 7:30pm), Friday (10:00am – 5.00pm) and Saturday and Sunday (10:30am – 5.00pm).
