What is Story Box Library?

Story Box Library is a subscription based educational website, created for children to view stories by local authors and illustrators, being read aloud by fantastic, predominantly Australian and New Zealand, storytellers.

Storytime. Anytime.

Reading aloud to children, in particular by diverse and engaging storytellers, greatly improves language and literacy skills, especially in the early years of a child’s development. Sadly, studies show that many children are not read to frequently enough.

Since 2013, Story Box Library has been committed to supporting and encouraging the practice of storytelling. It is intended for use as a complementary form of delivering the precious experience of being read aloud to, in order to improve children’s lives. We connect children with literature through the complementary medium of film providing a vibrant, interactive experience via a diverse range of everyday storytellers - sportspeople, musicians, grandparents, teenagers, comedians, actors, with varying accents and from different cultures - each sharing past and present book titles.

Use it as a bedtime tale, a facilitator for discussion in the classroom, or a read aloud model - the choice is yours. No matter what the reason for your visit to Story Box Library, we help get kids excited about reading, inspire their imaginations, and let them have fun with stories.
