Join Book Links

Anyone with an interest in young people’s literature is invited to join the organisation.

The membership joining fee per calendar year is $20 personal member, $30 family membership with a scale of fees for corporate members depending on the size of the institution ranging from $20 – $100. We usually set up new bookings after an AGM so new members joining then can carry their membership through to the end of the following year.

Meetings are usually held on the first Saturday of the month starting at 10:30 am at a meeting room in the State Library of Qld as well as online as required. The meetings are followed by Write Links (a support group for children’s writers and illustrators) from 1:00pm until 5:00pm. These are usually hybrid meetings.

You can now join or renew your membership online using the Try Booking tool, just click HERE to pay online using a credit card. This is our preferred method.

For anyone who joins or renews for 2022 before 1 January 2023 you will go into a draw to win a $50 gift voucher from one of our supporting bookshops.  You will be able to choose which one you want to shop at either in person or online.

Alternatively, you can still download a form to send in.
