The 2015 YSS Early Literacy Calendar is Available

Did you catch this announcement on the Youth Services Shout-Out-YSS blog?

The 2015 Early Literacy Calendar is now available! This project is brought to you by YSS and awesome librarians from all over WI contributed to it. The calendar offers caregivers 365 days of tips on how to raise a reader. A wonderful resource to provide to patrons at your Library and to offer as a handout at outreach visits.

The 2015 Early Literacy Calendar is also available on the Growing Wisconsin Readers website under Resources for Librarians. Be sure to share this resource not only with your patrons, but community partners as well.  A Wisconsin librarian recently reported that her local 4K teachers have been so impressed with the Early Literacy Calendar that they are using it instead of something they got in their curriculum packet for home engagement activities.  How's that for early literacy community partnerships?

Thanks for developing this resource Youth Services Section!
