All Ages Storytime

How old is too old  to read to a child?  It turns out that there isn’t really an age that is too old.  I haven't been a child for a while, but I still love having someone read to me!  Being read to both increases comprehension and builds a positive relationship between reader and read-ee.

Call for CLEL Steering Committee Members

We are looking for enthusiastic CLEL members who are interested in becoming Steering Committee members. Steering Committee members have had a chance to spread their wings, add to professional networks, and take on new challenges in their library careers, while making a positive difference in early literacy efforts across Colorado. CLEL has many more ideas for the future-and you could be one of the people to put those plans in action!

Here are the details:

Conference Materials

Thank you all again for attending the 2013 CLEL Conference!  It was a huge success.  

We have comprised all of the materials from the conference under the Conference Tab on the webpage.  You will find materials from the breakout sessions, the elevator speeches and song share, including the sessions that were cancelled.  We will add videos from the days events soon.  

We hope to see everyone next year for another amazing day!


CLEL Conference Attendees Map

I just made a map of where everyone is coming from the CLEL Conference.  It is awesome!  Of course, the Front Range has tons of people, but we have many others from near and far.  We have people from as far as Mancos Public Library on the western side of the state and as far as Sterling Public Library on the Eastern side.  I didn't even know where Norwood Public Library was located (it is on the western slope, southwest of Montrose).
