First 5 Forever

First 5 Forever is an initiative of the State Library of Queensland and is a universal family literacy program aimed at supporting stronger language and  literacy environments for young children from 0–5 years and their families. First 5 Forever will directly support parents and primary caregivers to be confident as the child’s first and most important teacher, and will provide parents with increased access to resources they need through public libraries.

Check out the First5Forever website for easy ways that you can help your child with their language and literacy.

All school aged children are welcome to come to Lowood Library’s Lego club. The library will supply building bricks and accessories for building challenges and free play.  Participants are able to work individually or in teams to create weekly challenges.

Promoting play contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity and language and vocabulary skills. It also lays the foundation for logical thinking and problem solving.
