Free posters - cyber bullying
Would library visitors know what to do if their child was being cyber bullied? The Office of the eSafety Commissioner has some great posters it is happy to send to libraries. These can be placed around the library or offered to local schools. A small touch, but one that could have a massive impact on the life of a young person.

Order your free cyber bullying posters.

An eSmart mousepad
Wimmera Library created an eSmart mousepad design and is allowing us to turn it into a template for you to use at your own library.

Other libraries have adapted it and turned it into their own ideas. See an example from Big Sky Libraries below.
