Promote early literacy by developing programming around this education initiative for parents and caregivers.
Every Child Ready to Read @ your library is a parent education initiative. It stresses that early literacy begins with the primary adults in a child’s life. The 2nd edition of Every Child Ready to Read @ your library Kit, released in 2011, builds on the 1st edition, introduced in 2004. The 2nd edition incorporates recommendations that evolved out of an in-depth evaluation of the original initiative and an extensive literature review. Jessica Chamberlain, director of the Northeast Library System, will review the program, highlight the changes that were made in the 2nd edition, and explain how you can incorporate early literacy education into your library’s existing programs.
