The Better Beginnings Book Cubby has had an amazing makeover thanks to staff and young writers and illustrators from Bentley Library. In late 2015 Bentley Library was the Metropolitan winner of our prize draw for those libraries who had delivered the Better Beginnings program to all of their local Kindergartens. The prize was a workshop with a local artist and their library community to decorate one of the Better Beginnings Book Cubbies.

We are over the moon that the wonderful children’s author, Leigh Hobbs, has been announced as the Australian Children’s Laureate for 2016-2017!

Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy...all the way to the 2015 AWESOME Festival!
