Children’s Space

Keep the little ones entertained at the Clocktower Centre with the newly refurbished and expanded café and brand-new children’s little library space.

Parents and carers can sit back and relax with a coffee and a snack from the Clocktower Café while the kids explore the space, watch the trams go by or listen to their favourite book with the interactive Storytime Pod. The new children’s space includes activity boards and large-scale games as well as a selection of hundreds of books.

The books are part of our library collection and can be borrowed onsite using our library app, or walked down to Sam Merrifield Library to be checked out there. They can be returned to any of our library branches.

There are toilets and change facilities adjoining the children’s space, all of which are fully pram and wheelchair accessible.

This is part of the Community Lounge initiative. As part of MV2040 and Council’s vision for a healthy city, we recognise the need to provide library programs and services that meet the varying requirements of everyone in our community. By creating a free, welcoming and lounge-like space, with multiple services available, our libraries become the heart of every 20 minute neighbourhood.
