Help the SNSL Campaign by entering our photo competition.  All Australian
school libraries are invited to submit photos to be in the running for one of several fantastic prizes to help a library thrive in 2019.

What’s it all about?

We want to see, hear and feel what your library, your patrons, your staff are like.

Snap a scene that reflects a thriving school library. For instance, you might spot students and staff who are: creating on laptops, learning to use a database, participating in a makerspace meeting, reading in a relaxed setting, discussing a book, working in groups, playing chess, etc.

Think about themes and expressions to capture: delight, awe, wonder, industry, collaboration, beauty, brilliance, silence, exuberance, concentration, curiosity, functionality, learning, appreciation, innovation and the full diversity of our Australian society.


Thank you to our generous supporters for donating a range of exciting prizes to motivate us. 

WebLinks subscription for one year, two $100 Visa vouchers from Softlink, $200 for books or ebooks from Wheelers, a subscription to over 2,300 scripts at and a beautiful boxed set of Harry Potter paperbacks from Bloomsbury.
