Queen Victoria Market pop-up library offers entertainment and history walks

A library for foodies in the Queen Victoria Market precinct is the first in a series of themed pop-up libraries that will open across the City of Melbourne. 

The ‘Feed Your Mind’ library at 510 Elizabeth Street will feature author talks and workshops focused on good food, and encourage visitors to explore the offerings at Queen Victoria Market so they can dish up tasty meals. 

The food-themed materials will be paired with content for a wider audience including fiction, events with writers and history walks. Every book in the 1400-item collection is brand new and ready to be borrowed for the first time. 

The library will also feature the Make*It Space, where budding artisans and tech gurus can design their creations. 

The pop-up library series is part of the $200 million Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund – a collaboration between the City of Melbourne and the Victorian Government. 

‘Feed Your Mind’ will be open until mid-2022. A number of other themed pop-up libraries will be revealed this summer.
