Multnomah County Library. (2007). Storytime: Not Just for Kids Anymore: Enhancing Library Storytime with Early Literacy Skills and Messages. [DVD and Discussion Guide]. Portland, OR: Multnomah County Library, Early Childhood Resources.
I just watched the DVD, it is an excellent storytime training for children's librarians! This DVD will show you what it is really like to integrate early literacy into storytimes. You will see librarians presenting storytimes at the library with children and parents. You will see what each early literacy skill looks like in an actual storytime, how children demonstrate each skill so you know what to look for, and get ideas about how to talk to parents about each skill. The discussion guide is aimed at presenting storytime training to a group of children's librarians, but if you are just looking to improve your own storytimes and learn more about how to integrate the early literacy skills intentionally into your storytimes you will get a lot of information and ideas from the discussion guide as well. I highly recommend checking this out!
Furness, A. (2008). Helping Homeschoolers in the Library. Chicago, IL: American Library Association.
This practical guidebook seeks to bridge the gap between librarians and homeschoolers in these two ways: who are homeschoolers and how can I help them practically? Part 1 addresses the history and background of homeschooling as well as the needs and viewpoints of various homeschooling groups. Part 2 deals specifically with building programs and services for the homeschooling population.
Addressing all age groups, from how to serve elementary school children and teens, to even the homeschooling parent, homeschooling expert Furness offers
. In-depth chapters dedicated to different types of homeschooling and unschooling movements
. Comprehensive discussion of resources to serve the diverse homeschooling population
. Ideas on programs and social outlets the library can provide
. Annotated lists of further readings at the end of each chapter, plus website resources and electronic discussion lists
. 17 real-life stories of librarians interacting with homeschoolers
