Event Details

Ohio Ready to Read is pleased to announce another offering of its FREE workshop on early literacy basics, open to all Ohio public library workers. This training provides essential early literacy information, valuable for all staff who plan and present storytimes and other programs for children.  Participants will learn how brain development impacts how young children learn, and will explore effective, research-based early literacy resources and activities. The workshop covers the Six Early Literacy Skills presented in the PLA/ALSC Every Child Ready to Read® 1st edition, and the Five Early Literacy Practices presented in the 2nd edition, along with other early literacy concepts and storytime tips. Ohio Ready to Read trainers Kate McCartney from the Marysville Public Library and Janet Ingraham Dwyer from the State Library of Ohio will lead the workshop.  Learn more about the Early Literacy 101 workshop: www.ohreadytoread.org/early-literacy-101

There will be a one hour break for lunch on your own; a list of nearby restaurants will be provided at the workshop.

Certificates of attendance will be available for this workshop, which provides 6 contact hours for Ohio Public Library Staff/Ohio Public Librarian recertification.

Ohio Ready to Read is supported by federal Institute of Museum and Library Services funds, granted through the State Library of Ohio. There is no charge to attend this workshop.
