Pop-up Library

Council’s Pop-up Library is designed to bring the joy of reading to Brisbane residents at community events, festivals and selected parks across the city.

At the Pop-up Library you can:

  • browse library collections and borrow items to take home, including children's board books, picture books, adult fiction and non-fiction titles
  • enjoy library programs, including children’s storytime sessions, giant games and interactive robotics workshops
  • sign-up for free membership to Council's library services - just bring identification.

Children’s storytime in parks

The Pop-up Library visits seven parks across Brisbane on a fortnightly schedule. During each of these visits, library staff host interactive First 5 Forever children’s storytime sessions for children and their parents or carers to enjoy.

Children’s storytime sessions aim to:

  • support early literacy development and parents in their role as a child’s first and most important teacher
  • present a fun, educational and interactive way of learning rhymes and songs that you and your child can take home to enjoy together
  • include practical tips on how you can support your child’s language and literacy skills from birth. 

First 5 Forever is an initiative of the Queensland Government, coordinated by State Library of Queensland and delivered in partnership with local government.
