Congratulations to Sunshine Coast Libraries for placing third in the coveted IFLA International Marketing Awards with their Story Seats project.

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) is the leading international body representing the interests of library and information services and their users. It is the global voice of the library and information profession with more than 1,300 members in 140 countries worldwide. A record number of applications were received this year with 116 submissions from 30 countries! Winners were selected via criteria that demonstrated innovative and original project marketing strategies.

The Story Seats campaign in conjunction with First 5 Forever was highlighted as a unique way to merge the Australian outdoor lifestyle and reading with local families, tourists and libraries. Third place receives financial support towards airfare, lodging and registration to attend the 85th IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Athens, August 2019.

Congratulations also to Ipswich Libraries for placing in the IFLA Marketing Awards top ten with their new Marketplace website. It is fantastic to see Queensland Libraries on the world stage. Click here to find out more about the rest of the winners for 2019.
