Howdy Partner!

A recent post on Teaching Young Children urged preschool teachers, educators, and PreK teachers to "Get to Know the NEW Children's Librarian." 

"Librarians strengthen and connect their communities by providing up-to-date information, resources, and programming to teachers working with young children. Children’s librarians always want to hear about what children and teachers are working on and how they can help. When you partner with a children’s librarian, you will find new ways to individualize early literacy and learning for each child in your program."

Collections, outreach, programs, new media, and funding solutions are identified as reasons why early childhood educators should get in touch with public libraries.  Take a moment to reflect on your space and services--what do you have to offer?  

The Growing Wisconsin Readers initiative encourages community collaboration on the topic of early literacy. Find out how you can connect with childcare providers and literacy networks in your area using these resources
