interested librarians who are on vacation during our first presentation.

Multnomah County Library’s Allen Foundation Grant - Tues., August 11, 11am

>From campaigns to coalitions, the entire nation is talking about third
grade reading.  The discussion is focused on the critical importance of
being able to read fluently by third grade and the troubling predictable
long term consequences for those who cannot.  Specifically, reading
proficiency by third grade is the most important predictor of high school
graduation and career success. Yet every year, more than 80 percent of
low-income children miss this crucial milestone.

Join Multnomah County Library for a free webinar and learn the results of
their two year Paul Allen Family Foundation early literacy grant.


   Learn what K-3rd grade teachers say about how libraries can help address
   their student’s needs;

   How you can help answer their call;

   How MCL re-envisioned the collection and services to address this; and,

   New messaging any public library can share with early grade stakeholders
   to create deeper connections between beginning readers and the public
