First 5 Forever resources

All First 5 Forever resources are available using the First 5 Forever Dropbox. Dropbox is an online content storage tool that allows documents and files to be shared. You don’t need to have a Dropbox account to use this service. It is as easy as clicking on the links below and downloading the files you need to your local drive from the Dropbox website.

The First 5 Forever Dropbox is organised into five folders to support your library in planning, developing, promoting and sharing the local delivery of First 5 Forever.

  • Branding, marketing, media, signage and merchandise Includes all First 5 Forever branding including stars and frogs, media releases, videos, available photos for use, plus all print files for posters, bags, shirts, handouts, posters, signs and flyers. Please refer to the style guide to indicate how the First 5 Forever device should be used.
  • Webinars, workshops, presentations and learning resources Includes all First 5 Forever webinar recordings for downloading and all resources used in First 5 Forever webinars workshops and forums including plans, tip sheets, suggested links and presentations.
  • Public library contacts Updated regularly so that you can contact colleagues delivering First 5 Forever directly all around Queensland.
