Better Beginning’s

Better Beginnings has been developed by the State Library of Western Australia as a family literacy program that supports parents as their child’s first teacher. 

It works through strong partnerships with public libraries, local governments, health professionals and schools to:

  • build awareness in the whole community of the value of reading and sharing stories with young children from birth;
  • encourage and support parents in sharing books and activities that foster language and a love of reading with their young children; and
  • promote the vital role of public libraries as community hubs that provide ongoing support to parents and caregivers in giving their children a love of reading.
