About First 5 Forever

First 5 Forever is a family literacy initiative delivered by public libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres (IKCs) with the primary aim of providing strong early literacy foundations for all Queensland children aged 0-5 years.

First 5 Forever directly supports parents and primary caregivers through public libraries to build confidence as their child’s first and most important educator.
