Brand new Kids Only library card

Sunshine Coast Libraries believe that every child needs a Library card of their own. Their very own Kids Only library card gives your child access to thousands of resources to explore to learn, dream and imagine.

This year, Sunshine Coast Libraries have collaborated with local author and illustrator Philip Bunting to create a new Kids Only library membership card. The card features the Pythonidae Bookmunchii Sunnycoastius, aka the Common Bookeater Python.

Philip Bunting is an author and illustrator based on the Sunshine Coast. Growing up in the English Lake District and moving to Australia in his early 20’s, Philip developed a deep fondness for Australian wildlife and landscape. He is a firm believer in reading to your child from a young age and the benefits it has on their development.

Philip’s books have been translated into multiple languages and published in over 25 countries around the world. Since his first book was published in 2017, Philip has received many accolades, including Honours from the Children’s Book Council of Australia. He was also nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal in 2018. Four of his latest titles appear on this year’s Children’s Book Council notable list for Picture book of the year.

You can reserve Philip Bunting's books and collect them from your local library.
