Bookworms is a site-specific augmented reality story, that allows children to explore the Austrian National Library in an entirely new way.

How do we know what is true and what is not?

The bookworms Anna, Bruno and Wolf go on a quest to find the truth – to distinguish fact from fiction – in the magnificent Baroque library, thereby introducing children to the space and some of the fascinating, ancient books within it.

The experience is available to children aged 7 – 12 as part of guided family tours.
