Libraries launch new youth content hub

Boroondara Library Service’s new youth and children content hub brings together reading advice and age-tailored book tips.

We know that reading with children is one of the best ways to help them explore words, ideas, characters and magical lands, and establish an early love of books. It introduces children to the world of storytelling, promotes discussion, and helps parents to learn about their child’s interests.

With that in mind, our library teams have chosen their favourite children’s books and launched a new online resource for parents. Tailored to four specific age groups, we’ve outlined reading advice, tips and recommended book lists for young children.

Whether it’s Mem Fox, Davina Bell or Ezekiel Kwaymullina, we’ve selected age-appropriate stories that will help you introduce your child to unfamiliar and exciting settings.

Our aim is to Transform Boroondara and make sure that parents and children have access to the resources they need to develop early literacy skills, and kickstart a love of reading.

Visit Literacy and reading resources for families for more information and start reading today.
