PLA2012 is a buzz with talk of Every Child Ready to Read 2nd Edition. This morning I co presented at “Early Literacy and Learning Spaces” and then attended “Every Child Ready to Read in Action”. It was so exciting to hear about what so many libraries are doing for early literacy all over the county. From beautiful spaces, practical places to energetic workshops for staff, parents and caregivers. The conference rooms for these presentations buzzed with excitement and ideas to be carried home.
It was a joy to talk with excited professionals about what they are doing to promote the five practices in the library as well as the home. It was invigorating to over hear conversations about what ideas will be implemented into children’s spaces and programs at small and large libraries alike.
What are you doing to promote early literacy at your libraries in your children’s space or in your programming?
