Hello again!

One late item to add to your December CE calendar - looks like a good one, thanks to our friends at the Colorado State Library and the IMLS!

December 12 (10:00-11:30) / Lessons from SPELL: Supporting Parents in Early Literacy through Libraries (Colorado State Library)
Do you strive to reach low-income parents of young children with an effective early literacy message? Please join us for this session to learn research-based, effective strategies to reach this important audience using knowledge from existing programs and literature, along with input from parents themselves. Findings from the SPELL project, funded by an IMLS National Leadership Grant, shed important light on the best times, places, and methods for libraries and other organizations that work with families to reach and effectively communicate with low-income parents of children ages 0-3 about early literacy.

During the session, you'll have the opportunity to share your own experiences with working with this audience, as well as give input into the project as it moves forward with a blueprint of recommendations and a larger project to test its findings. The webinar is presented by Dr. Mary Stansbury and Dr. Duan Zhang of the University of Denver, in partnership with the Colorado State Library. There is no registration required for this free online session.
