Reading changes lives…
The video clips below provided by Logan City Council Libraries show how babies and toddlers can become readers for life. By following some quick and easy steps, parents and carers learn how, when and where to read to their baby or child. The video clips include tips on choosing books, and how bedtime is easier with books.

This year Logan City Council Libraries are proud to run the Mayor’s Reading Challenge, in partnership with Education Queensland, to encourage the love of reading. Families that read together create future readers.
Aims of the Challenge include:
- Encouraging young people to read.
- Encouraging children, young people and their families to use their local library.
- Developing literacy and numeracy skills.
- Fostering a love of books, reading, literature and developing the library habit.
All children from birth to Year 6 are encouraged to complete the Challenge.
- 0 – 5 (with support of family members/carers);
- Prep – Yr 3 (with support of family members/carers);
- Yr 4 – Yr 6
Young people in Grades 7 – 12 can enter the Summer Read Book Trailer and Book Review Competition, advertised in the What’s On booklet, Library website and flyers.
The Mayor’s Reading Challenge opens on December 3, 2012 and closes February 8, 2013, and registration is available online or by visiting one of Logan’s nine libraries.
Logan City Council’s Libraries & Cultural Services Branch employs around 200 volunteers who provide a range of valuable services. These include: assistance at the Logan Art Gallery and Mayes Cottage; delivery of books to housebound borrowers, adult literacy tutoring; computer skills training for seniors, genealogy research, homework help for school students, and musical accompaniment at story time sessions.
The Libraries & Cultural Services Volunteer Strategy is a project which will inform how we recruit, train, retain, recognise and make best use of current and future volunteers working for Logan City Council’s Libraries & Cultural Services. Data for this project will be gathered through community consultation, such as this survey, and additional research.
We want your input! Whether or not you currently volunteer, we would like your feedback about volunteering.
If you have any questions regarding this survey, please call Rani McLennan, Libraries Administration Officer on 3412 4147.
