Pop Ups @ the Park are back and booking good

Isaa libraries pop ups the park are back copy

Isaac Libraries are heading back to the outdoors across the region with their popular children’s program sharing the magic of story time.

The First 5 Forever program – Pop Ups @ The Park – is starting back for its second year from 17 July, bringing back the interactive sessions in the Isaac region’s beautiful parks and outdoor spaces.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said First 5 Forever is fun and supportive, giving parents the tools to be their child’s first and most important educator.

“The First 5 Forever program allows children and parents to play, talk and sing together, all while incorporating the joys of being outside and active,” Mayor Baker said.

“We want our parents and care givers to be empowered to help their children learn when their brains are developing at their fastest.”

The first set of Pop Ups @ the Park will be held at:

  • Bernborough Park, Moranbah from 9.30am to 11.30am on Friday, 17 July.
  • Camm Park, Middlemount from 9.30am to 11.30am on Friday, 31 July.
  • Theresa Creek Dam, Clermont from 9.30am to 11.30am on Tuesday, 4 August.
  • Perry Park, Nebo from 9.30am to 11.30am on Monday, 10 August.
  • Lion’s Park, Moranbah from 9.30am to 11.30am on Monday, 24 August.

Isaac libraries will be rolling more Pop Ups out over the year, with information available on Council’s website.

The First 5 Forever program, a state-wide initiative delivered locally by Isaac Libraries, provides strong early literacy foundations for all children aged between 0-5 years.

A partnership between the State Library of Queensland, the Queensland Government and 74 Queensland Local Governments, the initiative is largely delivered through local public libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres.
