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.
As part of the Queensland Government First Five Forever Literacy Initiative Somerset Regional Libraries are now offering two new Baby Bounce sessions.
Baby Bounce is a lapsit program designed to introduce your child to language through songs, rhymes and stories to encourage interaction.
This program is designed for parents and their child under two years of age.
Sessions last about 30 minutes.
In Kilcoy the session will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 9.30am.
In Lowood the session will be held weekly on Mondays from 9.00am.
In Esk the session will be held weekly on Mondays from 9.00am.
No bookings are required, just come along and have some fun. Sessions are not held during school holidays.

Join us for creativity and imagination in action.
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.
