Exploring Early Literacy in Public Libraries

Join Lisa G. Kropp, First Steps columnist for School Library Journal, and member of the NYS Ready to Read training cohort, as she discusses ways libraries of all sizes can increase their early learning opportunities.

Did you know that 17% of children under the age of 6 in New York State are read to by a family member less than three days a week? Find out why your public library should make early learning the foundation of their long term plan when it comes to program and service sustainability.

Participants will:

  1. understand how important early learning is for young children
  2. learn ways public libraries can incorporate early literacy and learning into existing programs
  3. learn how to incorporate early learning "elevator speeches" into readers' advisory services
  4. leave the webinar with at least one new idea to try at their library
