Story Box Library

 At Newcastle Library, we love stories… we also love interactive resources for our members and Story Box Library is both! Your library card now gives you access to the wonderful world of Australian children's literature through film. Story Box Library provides a vibrant, interactive experience via a diverse range of everyday Australian storytellers - sportspeople, musicians, grandparents, teenagers, comedians, actors, with varying accents and from different cultures - each sharing past and present book titles. 

The result is meaningful, entertaining readings that focus on both teller and tale. Listen to Andy Griffith read you his 'The 39-Storey Treehouse' or Nick Cave lend his voice to spooky narration of 'The Ghost of Annabel Spoon'.  Updated regularly with wonderful new titles the website is user-friendly with hand held devices - perfect for families 'on the go'. You can always find Story Box Library through the Library's website under e-Collections > e-Kids. 

Whether it's a book read on a road trip with the family or a bedtime story under the covers, Story Box Library help children journey to that most uniquely precious place; the wilds of their own imagination.

Enjoy a little example of The Brothers Quibble read by author Aaron Blabey.
