Welcome to Queensland Branch

The Children's Book Council is an Australia-wide organisation which aims to foster children's enjoyment of books. On a national level, the organisation of the annual Children's Book of the Year Awards and Children's Book Week together with a biennial National Conference focussing on children's literature are important ways of achieving this aim.

The Qld Branch is organised by volunteers and operates out of the Qld Writers Centre located in the State Library of Queensland (SLQ). These important partnerships aim to connect organisations interested in literature in its many forms. The best way to contact us is by emailing: qld@cbca.org.au

We generally meet every third Tuesday of the month on Level 2, SLQ, Stanley Place, South Brisbane. Our meetings run from 6 - 8 pm.
