Join us for an early literacy double header! Come to one or both sessions!
In the morning: Potent Outreach Partnerships. Come learn how to use partnerships to address cultural, ability, and economic differences among families in our outreach communities.
In the afternoon: Super Spaces. Early literacy spaces can be super whether they’re large or small! Come learn how to spice up your space with color, activities, and inexpensive learning stations.
Each training is part of the Ready to Read at New York Libraries project, a state effort focused on improving and expanding the availability of high quality public library early learning services in local communities. Attendees at the morning Partnerships session will earn 3 contact hours, and at the afternoon Spaces session 2.5 contact hours.
