Literacy

State Library of Queensland and Queensland public libraries are committed to building literacy through innovation and collaboration. With a focus on engagement, discovery, reading and belonging, libraries offer a specialised workforce, infrastructure, programs and collections to aid literacy support in communities.

The resources available on this web page include a wide range of literacy support tools that libraries will find useful, including online self paced learning programs, conference presentations and a discussion list to encourage the exchange of ideas, research, and strategies between practitioners, academics, government and other literacy providers.
