A Goal for 2014: Support Caregivers

The Growing Wisconsin Readers initiative encourages caregivers to plant the seed for lifelong learning by growing a reading relationship with their child.  As librarians and early childhood advocates, how can we support this process, especially for at-risk children and families?

The following video from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University illustrates how building adult capabilities can have a profound effect on children and communities.

As you develop plans for the new year, consider ways in which your library can be a literacy leader by building the capacities of adults in your community.
