The State Library of South Australia is excited to be working with Mem Fox, one of Australia’s most celebrated children’s authors, to create a dedicated space for children and families in the library’s Institute Building.
Named in honour of Mem Fox’s contribution to children’s literature and early childhood literacy, this special place will be where families can come to read and play together, engage in creative activities, and attend children’s programs and events. The library aims to provide a space for children and families to explore stories and storytelling in an inclusive and inspiring environment. The Institute Building has long been a place to celebrate literacy, history and culture. It is fitting then that it is to be revitalised as a child and family friendly space, celebrating children’s literature.
