Date: Thursday, September 6, 2012

Place: Guilderland Public Library
Presenter: Saroj Ghoting
Cost: MVLS/UHLS Member Libraries: $15 ; all others: $50  (NOTE: Special ‘double-header’ pricing available for this workshop in conjunction with Play at the Library : Creating Early Literacy Spaces that Invite Learning, to be held on November 1.  Follow this link for information on that workshop and to claim special pricing)

Libraries play a key role in giving young children a foundation for literacy and learning. Yet as modern life get busier, separating storytimes by age group may not always fit families’ needs. The answer? Storytimes for newborn to 5 year-olds and their parents and caregivers.

Join us to learn how multi-age storytimes can offer children unique experiences and provide parents with messages and modeling to use in building a strong family learning environment. Discover strategies for success, refresh your child development knowledge, explore new storytime models, and learn how your early literacy-enhanced storytimes can become a catalyst for change in your community.

Hands-on practice included; please bring with you:

1. Words to an action rhyme/fingerplay or action song.

2. One book that works well for more than one age-group (0 – 18 months, 18 – 35 months, 3 – 5 years)

Registration deadline for this workshop, as well as for the special ‘double-header’ pricing is August 31.  The registration form and full information on both workshops is at
