05/16/2017 Growing Readers Together: Early Literacy Services Beyond Your Library

  • With Joyce Johnson & Pamela Mejia de Rodriguez
  • When 05/16/2017 at 12:00p - 1:00p, Mountain Time

Your library has a thriving storytime program, strong collection of board and picture books, perhaps parenting classes, and other services to support young families inside your library, but now you want to share those services beyond your library walls? How can you reach parents, unlicensed childcare providers, and young children that don’t come to your library–often the very population that needs library services the most?

Join us for this interactive session to explore valuable community partnership opportunities, promotional possibilities, and methods for providing outreach to families, unlicensed childcare providers, and beyond. We will discuss research-based practices in Colorado libraries; potential collaborations; challenges and successes around outreach; and come away with practical ideas you can implement in your library.
