(please register by filling out the form below)
 
In this continuation of our successful early literacy Q & A from the Fall, Lindsay Barrett will be back to answer more questions about supporting literacy learning at home for kids in preschool through 3rd grade. She’ll start with some brief tips based on previous topics of interest, like low-tech, simple ways to incorporate literacy learning into your busy family schedule, ways to maintain consistency between home and school, and tips for motivating and supporting reluctant or struggling new readers. Then she’ll be available to address parent and caregiver questions in an informal chat format. Youth Services Librarian Megan Smith will also be on hand to talk about helpful library resources for this age group. 
 
Attendees of our fall Zoom and new attendees are both encouraged to join!
 
If the time doesn’t work for you, feel free to email your questions in advance to Megan Smith; we’ll include them in the discussion and share the call recording.
