Ideas for campaigns and events in your library



All year round advocacy

These campaigns and events give you the opportunity to run fun, informative activities in the library, online and through social media all year round. Follow the links to access resources that will bring topics to life in your library.

Many of these campaigns and events are organised by ALIA. For some we have partnered with government and other agencies to develop materials.

While many are public and school library focused, others have broad appeal. We will be adding more from time to time, so keep checking back.
