Play Pod at the State Library of Victoria
The State Library of Victoria in Swanson Street, right in the heart of the city, is one of the most beautiful libraries in the world.
There's even more reason to enjoy the central library of the state with your children, because there's a Play Pod to explore. The Play Pod is an undercover courtyard space dedicated to children's books and related activities.

The Play Pod is open every day from 10am–4pm. There's plenty of space for your kids to play and explore, giving you all the more reason to pay a visit to the State Library of Victoria when you're out and about in the city.
The Play Pod's current and forthcoming themes can be seen on the State Library of Victoria's website.
