Overview

First 5 Forever is an initiative of the Queensland Government and coordinated by the State Library of Queensland. This exciting early years program is being delivered in partnership with local government. Since 2015 Ipswich Libraries’ First 5 Forever team has been delivering programs for little ones across the community with an aim to make talking, reading and singing part of your daily routine – any time, any place. 

It’s never too early to start sharing stories and rhymes, singing, talking and playing with your child. It’s not only fun, but good for little brains too.
