Stoltz, Dorothy, Elaine M. Czarnecki, and Connie Wilson. Every Child Ready for School: Helping Adults Inspire Young Children to Learn. Chicago: ALA Editions, 2013. ISBN: 978-0-8389-1125-9

Publisher's Description
The topic of early literacy continues to gain momentum in educational circles. But early literacy storytimes are only one way libraries can contribute. The authors of this innovative training handbook offer many more. Reflecting the combined expertise of a reading specialist, an outreach librarian, and an early literacy trainer, Every Child Ready for School keeps libraries at the forefront of early literacy and school readiness information delivery. Focusing on training the caregiver, this handbook

  *   Explains how to help day-care providers, homeschoolers, and others who care for young children foster school-readiness skills among their charges
  *   Arms librarians with a step-by-step workshop model, with tips on implementing and evaluating the program
  *   Provides guidance for coordinating workshops with other library early literacy initiatives
  *   Includes resources and activities to share with participants

Presenting models which can be easily adapted to state-mandated school-readiness requirements, Every Child Ready for School helps libraries fashion their own innovative community early literacy outreach programs.

Donham, John. Enhancing Teaching and Learning: A Leadership Guide for School Librarians. 3rd ed. Chicago: ALA Neal-Schuman, 2013. ISBN: 978-1-55570-887-0

Chapter 5 is about the community outside of schools and has a section called Public Library Connections.

Publisher's Description
This new edition of a classic shows how to take a proactive role in shaping instruction by learning how to develop and implement a library media program and integrate it into the total educational experience. Revised and updated, Donham’s third edition covers all aspects of the school system: students, curriculum and instruction, principals, district administration, and the community. It demonstrates how to interact and collaborate in order to integrate the school library media program throughout these environments. This new edition offers

  *   Real-life examples of issues in school librarianship
  *   Current statistics and research results on early learning, child poverty, and other topics
  *   A new chapter on "the virtual school library"
  *   Expanded coverage of nonfiction and complex texts

Readers will benefit from this complete coverage of the school environment--common staff structures, budget issues, and more.
