The network produces a book each year which gives teachers, teacher-librarians, and public librarians ideas on how to celebrate Children's Book Week. A Biennial Festival of Children's Literature StoryArts Festival Ipswich is also organised by the network. The Network is a major donor to the The Children's Book Council of Australia Awards Foundation and winner of the 2001 IASL/SIRS Commendation Award.
