Story Box Library's 2023 Summer Story & Activity Challenge
Keep kids inspired with diverse stories and creative activities over the summer with Story Box Library’s ‘23 Summer Story and Activity Challenge.
Designed to support the summer reading programs and book clubs already offered by public libraries, Story Box Library connects families with a world of stories by extending your library’s collection anywhere there’s an internet connection - including the back garden, local park or even a beach tent - and also encouraging them to visit their library and connect with their communities.
Story Box Library is excited to launch Isaiah Firebrace’s first children’s book, Come Together: Things Every Aussie Kid Should Know about the First Peoples.
Drawing on Isaiah’s personal story and culture, and inspired by his petition to the Australian Government calling for Aboriginal history to be taught in every classroom, this is an essential book for young and older readers.
Assisting libraries in promoting Story Box Library to patrons in their community, don’t forget about our promotional resources for printed and digital use! Download ready-to-use assets and resources, encouraging patrons to use Story Box Library at the library or in the comfort of their own home.
Engage children in learning activities and linked stories with a brand-new Resource section! The new website update hosts all of Story Box Library’s helpful resources including Activity Time, PD events, promotional materials and more, in a vibrant new format.
