Have you met Scout yet?

Scout is a fun, interactive chat-bot that uses a conversational interface to help children quickly discover books matched to their interests and general reading ability.

Scout asks a series of simple questions to assess a child’s interests and reading level before dispensing a list of up to five books they will enjoy reading in The Children’s Library.

This innovative chat-bot was created by award-winning experience designer Meena Tharmarajah in collaboration with the Library's DX Lab,

You can chat to Scout on the ground floor of our Macquarie Street Building.
