Workshop - Early Literacy Skills

Date: Thursday, November 17, 2011
Time: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Place: Guilderland Public Library
Presenters: Mary Fellows, Sue Rokos, and local author/illustrator Matt McElligott
Cost: Free for MVLS and UHLS member library staff ; $25 all others

National emphasis on early literacy and the parent’s role in preparing children for reading success is increasing. As funders and government agencies focus more resources on early literacy, public libraries need to develop staff skills and early literacy-based services to position the library as a key player.


In this workshop, you will learn about research-based practices to help young children develop the skills they need before they learn to read. Included:



  • An introduction to the second edition of Every Child Ready to Read® (ECRR) @ your library®, a program based on the five early literacy practices of talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing



    • A preview of the ECRR workshop for parents and caregivers


    • Creating early literacy and learning spaces in your library
