Anyone new to presenting a library storytime has asked the following questions: Which books should I read? Are crafts required? To puppet or not to puppet? But it's also important to ask: How am I helping to build early literacy skills? How can I engage parents and caregivers? This interactive workshop will address the components of a successful storytime as well as how to incorporate best practices for early literacy into programs and outreach. We will also be reviewing the Talking is Teaching campaign and early literacy grant opportunities for 2019, including loanable kits for families and an early literacy kickoff event. Bring a bag, because you’ll leave with swag!
Snow date has been set for January 29th.
