Hello! The state library in Virginia is making several of their online courses available to folks nationwide. Below are the descriptions and links you need to learn about and register for the courses. The first three look great if you have been looking for training in the Every Child Ready to Read 2nd Edition early literacy curriculum, if you weren't able to participate in Reading for Healthy Families or if you just want a refresher because you haven't used the curriculum in a while.

The courses cost $25 or $50 which is a steal considering no travel is involved and that these are courses that last 4-5 weeks rather than a one day/one time training. Every Child Ready to Read 2nd Edition is available to check-out from the Oregon State Library<http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/2011/10/every-child-ready-to-read-2nd-edition.html> or purchase from the American Library Association<http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx?ID=3404>.

If you have any questions, please contact my counterpart in Virginia:
Enid Costley
Children's and Youth Services Consultant

Last time Virginia made their online courses available nationwide they filled up very fast. If you are interested, I suggest you act quickly to learn what you need to make your decision and to get any permissions necessary from your supervisor/director.

Thanks,
Katie

o   If your library has this title, put it on hold/check it out as you would any other library item.

o   Provide the full title "Every Child Ready to Read 2nd Edition" and tell them you would like to check them out via interlibrary loan.  The librarian should be able to help you through that process.
