Explore ENGAGEMENT at the 2014 Growing Wisconsin Readers Early Literacy Symposium

What do screen time guidelines, apps in storytime, and imaginative play have in common?  They are all topics related to early literacy engagement.  At the 2014 Growing Wisconsin Readers Early Literacy Symposium, state and national experts will explore the topic of engagement by discussing how books, screens, and physical spaces encourage literacy development in relationships between young children and their caregivers. Panel presentations and a display gallery will highlight early literacy innovations from public libraries around the state. 
The 2014 Growing Wisconsin Readers Early Literacy Symposium will be held on Friday, March 21 at the Holiday Inn in Stevens Point, WI from 9:00am-4:00pm. Wisconsin youth services librarians, public library directors, and early childhood advocates are invited to attend this day-long professional development opportunity (6 CEU).
