The Reading Lounge

One of the perks of membership with the Tasmanian Writers Centre is access to our free lending library. With an array of Tasmanian books and a variety of writing professional development guides, it’s well worth a look.

In early 2016, some of our members helped us make the move into our beautiful new library space. Pull up a chair (or a beanbag) in our the Salamanca Arts Centre library, a few doors down the hall from TWC, and explore our collection.

Would you like to book our space?

If you’d like to use the library space for your next meeting, book launch, writing group gathering, or other event, please be in touch. Email [email protected] and we’ll set you up in our space, which includes tables and chairs, water jugs, heating, internet, and an inspiring backdrop.

Browse our selection of books online via Library Thing.

Come and visit us in the Salamanca Arts Centre, and see the rotational artworks filling our hallway. Our exhibition here features Christopher Downes’ pieces, which tell stories of The Mercury’s newspaper cartoonists.

For a full list of the libraries across Tasmania and their opening hours, visit the LINC website. We recently sent the finest authors into libraries from Queenstown to Kingston, in which they ran a series of children’s creative writing workshops. See them in action in our photoblog and keep up to date with further workshops in our What’s On page.
