Hi! Last year at this time Oregon public library directors filled out a survey about working with early learning hubs. Information provided by library directors via that survey was used to create resources for all public libraries! The resources are now available on the OLA Children's Services Division website<http://www.csdola.org/early-learning-hubs.html>.

Are you struggling to get families to come to your storytimes or other early literacy programs? Are you having a hard time getting the word out to families with young children about the early literacy resources you have at the library? Use the Contact Directory<http://www.csdola.org/uploads/4/0/6/3/40634781/contactdirectoryelh.docx> to call or email someone at your early learning hub and start a conversation with them about helping families provide early literacy experiences for their children.

Are you looking to start or expand early literacy outreach to childcare providers, Head Start, and/or other organizations in your community that serve families with young children? Here are some Activity Ideas<http://www.csdola.org/uploads/4/0/6/3/40634781/activityideaselh.docx> for partnering with your early learning hub to help you reach the families that need library services the most. These are activities other Oregon libraries report doing with their early learning hub!

Do need help justifying the staff time and other costs associated with working with your early learning hub? Tell your library's stakeholders how other Oregon libraries are benefitting<http://www.csdola.org/uploads/4/0/6/3/40634781/advocacyelh.docx> from working with their early learning hubs. Your library might experiences these benefits too if you work with your hub.

Do you need help figuring out how to work with your early learning hub? Here are tips from other Oregon libraries<http://www.csdola.org/uploads/4/0/6/3/40634781/bestpracticeelh.docx>.

Hopefully these resources will help you develop partnership with your early learning hub that help your library reach more young children in your community!
