State Library staff provided information on the future of First 5 Forever including new features, proposed workshops and more online options.

The Summer Reading Club theme for 2019 will be announced soon and participants provided their feedback on the 2018 program. The group also previewed and gave feedback on an eresource evaluation tool developed by State Library.

The highlight for many staff was the roundtable discussion from each library about their programs and activities since the last meeting. Some popular program ideas included:

• Scavenger Hunts at Lockyer Valley Libraries
• Library Bag decorating workshop at North Burnett Libraries
• Big Truck Day at Redland Libraries
• Language Storytime at Harvey Bay Libraries
• Autism in Storytime at Brisbane Libraries
