Early Literacy

The Library supports the development of early literacy through its various programs, collection and support information. 44% of working age Australians don’t have the literacy skills they need to cope with the demands of everyday life and work. 

As a parent, reading to your young child is one of the most important things you can do to build the skills they need to learn to read and do well at school. The stronger a child’s literacy skills – and the more they are encouraged to read – the better chance they have to explore new ideas and pursue their interests.

The more a child reads the more options they have as they grow.
