Library staff who have undertaken ALIA's digital health literacy training program can now move into the next phase and run digital health literacy community programs in their libraries. We ask that all participating libraries run their community engagement sessions between now and the end of 2021. The online Digital Health Literacy training program finished on 31 March 2021. If you were unable to register and complete the program before then, you can now access the online training program.
The Australian Reading Hour returns for its tenth year on 14 September and libraries across the country are encouraged to join in and host events around the theme Stories that Matter: The Story of Me, the Story of You, and How we are becoming Us. More than 200 Australian book creators across all genres and age groups are available for in-person and online events discussing the Stories that Matter. The full list of Ambassadors can be found on the Australia Reads website. This year all library events will be supported with a promotional resource kit including posters, bookmarks, suggested Q&As for book club discussions and other activities.
