Embark on a magical journey with Bankstown Library’s Tovertafel!

Are you ready to experience a touch of magic? Discover the incredible Tovertafel (or "magic table") at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre, where imagination comes to life! This cutting-edge interactive table transports you to a world filled with wonder and excitement.

Engage in captivating games, puzzles and interactive stories that will spark your creativity and will help stimulate physical, cognitive, social and sensory levels in those who use it. It was developed for those with dementia to use but is now known to benefit both adults and children with intellectual disabilities. It also allows for wonderful opportunities of intergenerational play.
