Learning online


We are all finding the current crisis a challenge, especially children whose education has been interrupted. 

The Library is working hard to meet the demand for high quality educational opportunities online.  

If you are in a position to help us meet this rapidly escalating demand – and we fully understand that you may not be in a position to do so at present – we’d be extremely grateful for your assistance.  

Your investment will not be a short-term one. Learning online is one of the fastest growing and most exciting parts of the Library’s public service, and what we do now will be of lasting benefit. 
We are hoping to raise $100,000 before the end of this financial year so we can develop and distribute curriculum and collection-based online resources for children and young people.  

Examples of our current online offerings include: 

  • Online school holiday activities - children’s author workshops and drawing tutorials   

  • Virtual storytime sessions  

  • Online puzzles  

  • Audio guide to our Paintings from the Collection exhibition  

  • Curriculum-based resources and learning programs for K-12 students and teachers  

  • Online HSC help sessions  

  • Fun and engaging learning activities for a new learning content platform endorsed by the Department of Education  

  • Kids' guides and learning programs for our upcoming digital exhibitions 

Your tax-deductible donation will ensure that all children have access to the Library's learning resources, at anytime from anywhere.
