Some state and territory associations have a library service for people with Down syndrome, their families, and other members of the community, where you can find a range of books, resources and other items.
Down Syndrome Queensland
The Down Syndrome Queensland Resource Library contains hundreds of items for people with Down syndrome, their families, and other members of the community.
Each item has carefully been selected to be part of what has now become a vast array of resources for Down Syndrome Queensland members to use in their homes, schools, or other community settings.
Down Syndrome Queensland members can borrow up to 4 items at a time per month. School or organisation members can borrow up to 8 items at a time per month.
Books can be posted (including return) free of charge but educational games and such must be collected from Down Syndrome Queensland from our office in Stafford.
Down Syndrome New South Wales
Access to information is vitally important to our community.
Down Syndrome NSW has a significant collection of resources in the Julie Cromer Library Resource Centre of books, DVDs, journals and information kits.
Borrowing is available to Down Syndrome NSW members only, Monday to Thursday 9am and 4pm.
The loan period is six weeks. Renewals can be made by arrangement with the library if no reservation is listed.
The borrower is responsible for the return of resources by the due date.
Library resources may be collected from the office or mailed. Reimbursement of postage is appreciated.
