“While other early childhood professionals acknowledge the importance of reading as part of the learning experience, only libraries open up a world of books, a lifetime’s supply of free reading materials and other resources. Public libraries are the only government-funded agency available to children from babyhood, providing year-round, free access to resources and services that support reading and literacy.” ALIA EARLY LITERACY FRAMEWORK AND STRATEGY FOR AUSTRALIAN PUBLIC LIBRARIES

Register now for the next First 5 Forever webinar to hear colleagues from a variety of library services explore how they link collections to programming for young children and families.
