Community stories

Borrowing library, 2016

After the training session in August, Gosnells CPC made a borrowing library with the items in the bag so that they could reach more families. They would take a play group session with children and parents and speak to them about the importance of early literacy and other aspects of the program and then allow them to take books with them to read at home.

Lots of families were able to be engaged, early literacy was promoted often and families were able to access more books.

The event helped community professionals to be able to facilitate a session while equipping them with resources to enhance their teachings. The CPC also shared their idea with the other community professionals which lead to a discussion of possible collaborations.
