  • Reading
  • Information Literacy and research
  • Makerspace
  • Library promotion and advocacy
  • Evidence based practice
  • Library programs
  • Curriculum support,Wellbeing
  •  Other 😊

… across a range of year levels, so that we have activities of interest for both primary and secondary school libraries

Presentations can be done by one person or a team from one, or from multiple schools. Discounted conference tickets are available to presenters. For more information please contact Learners’ Playground coordinator Anne Weaver (
