The Lawn Library returns to the Sydney Festival Village in Hyde Park following a year of successful pop-up events all over the city. Nestled amongst the trees the City of Sydney’s Lawn Library creates an oasis of calm and the perfect chill-out zone for the whole family during a big day at the Festival.

Sit down and enjoy children’s rhyme-time, twilight story-time or late night readings, and participate in some fun, creative workshops as the Lawn Library comes alive with an array of free and ticketed events for everyone to enjoy.

Bookshelves will house hundreds of books, free for you to read or book swap. Bring a coffee, take a seat at our long communal table and talk, read or relax.

Beat the heat, take the weight off your feet and learn more about what’s great about our City!
