Step inside the La Trobe Reading Room and meet a mysterious lift operator who will take you down into the depths of the State Library Victoria on a journey to discover how books are made.

As the elevator shudders downwards, you will see some of the building’s history before arriving at your subterranean destination. Discover worlds imaginary, factual, historic, geographic, biographic and fictional as you learn what it takes to bring a book to life.
