On Wednesday, November 14 at 5pm Central, ALSC will present a new student session, Early Literacy in Action. A recent poll of new MLIS graduates found that most are interested to some degree in early literacy especially in regards to partnership development. In this student session, you will learn how to implement literacy efforts in your library and where to turn for partners.
