Early Literacy 101 is a free, hands-on workshop to help library staff build a firm foundation in early literacy. Participants will learn how brain development impacts how young children learn, and will explore effective, research-based early literacy resources and activities. Facilitators Carrie Burrier from Akron-Summit County Public Library and Lori Faust from Warren-Trumbull County Public Library will help attendees get ready to offer early literacy storytimes and to work with parents and community partners to share early literacy concepts, promote kindergarten readiness, and build community support.
The online workshop includes two 2-hour live sessions and approximately 2 hours of on-your-own work. This is a live, interactive workshop. Please register only if you will not be scheduled on a public service desk or have other work conflicts during the live workshop sessions. Access to a camera and microphone are strongly recommended.
This workshop is free for any Ohio public library worker. Space is limited.
