Queensland Museum sends public libraries some educational kits twice a year for schools, home school parents, kindergartens, and childcare centres to borrow.
The kits all have educational materials and connections to the Australian Curriculum, but institutions catering to younger children have also found them to be of interest. The kits are loaned for a two-week period and can be delivered to your closest library branch for you to collect.

Student Membership Partnership
Gladstone Regional Libraries are keen to work with schools across the region to ensure all students have access to a wide range of resources both physical and online to help with their learning needs. Our free membership gives access to a variety of databases which then allows schools to focus on providing other resources.
The process is a simple one for schools that would like to partner with us, parent/guardians fill in the form and it is returned to school where details are checked by administration. We’re happy for you to include the form in your enrolment pack if this makes the process easier for you. Once the school has a bundle of completed forms then we can collect them, join the students up and deliver a bundle of cards back to the school for distribution.
Contact Us for more information or to discuss your school’s participation.
