Instead of being a repository of information (which is what the internet has become) or an silent study space, transform your library into a place of active learning. Offer common areas to facilitate group study and digital collaboration. “A future in which libraries are noisy, messy innovation workshops is actually a return to form”, says Tod Colegrove, a librarian at the University of Nevada, Reno. Find out how to turn your library into a state of the art library, just like the great library of Alexandria before 300 BC.

Learn about how you can extend your library; somewhere between a classroom and a start-up incubator – a place where people can get involved with state-of-the-art technology. Book learning is now easily done digitally, creating and controlling the tools and devices that characterise modern society requires highly specialised skills. The only way to acquire them is through hands-on activity.

Become a better resource for your community or school.

State Library of Queensland run a variety of literacy based programs for children in the 8-16 age bracket. Over 2012 and 2013, working with Teacher Librarians, State Library developed Scratching the Surface, an innovative workshop framework that engaged students with low traditional literacy in creation of animated stories using Scratch software.  Broken into two parts, this session will provide workshop participants with an overview on the research and development undertaken by the State Library on programming for young people aged 9-16, as well as hands on experience on how to design and deliver after school workshops using digital programs such as Scratch. Join us to explore the potential of using digital technology as a bridge to literacy and engagement!
