What's New
  • Books Create Australia, of which ALIA is a founder member, has announced the launch of the new Books Create Australia website and unveiled two industry agreements which will benefit libraries across the nation. The first is the Jolly Postman agreement, named after the 1986 book The Jolly Postman or Other People’s Letters by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. It enables libraries to photocopy the removable inserts of children’s activity picture books so lost items can be easily replaced. The second is the storytime agreement which addresses the grey area of copyright law around whether libraries can host storytime events outside the library premises, without needing to seek permission from the copyright holder.
