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.

A Roomful of Stories encourages children, young people and families to engage with stories and the language in which they are told. Stories are everywhere, waiting to be discovered!

It also celebrates the International Year of Indigenous Language, with a focus on the use of oral language story telling.

This year’s Summer Reading Club will see a new delivery mode with a 40-day Reading Challenge! There are rewards to collect along the way. Just ask staff for more details.
