Online Storytime Evaluation
ALIA commissioned an evaluation report of the Online Storytime pilot program. Anyez Lindop researched and compiled the report using data from the first year of the program in 2021. The evaluation looks into the outcomes for library staff, library users engaging with the program, Australian picture book creators and Australian publishers over the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds supporting this evaluation were made available through the Australian Government's Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund.
