Talking the Advocacy Talk

When we as library staff are advocating for Early Literacy, we often do so by speaking with various members of our community. Whether we are delivering elevator speeches, (concise and audience-targeted summaries of the value of Early Literacy) providing Early Literacy tips, or simply speaking briefly with library patrons as we deliver reference and readers' advisory services, one thing to keep in mind is that selecting and focusing on few important themes can make our words more powerful, impactful, and memorable.

Welcome Back to the Advocacy Blog

Welcome back to our Advocacy blog!  It’s been a couple of years since our last submission, and it’s time to revive discussion of Early Literacy in our daily lives.  The Advocacy Committee will produce blog posts twice a month for the purposes of increasing knowledge and awareness of the mission of Early Literacy and CLEL.  We would like to invite you to follow our blog and put into practice some of our tips and suggestions.
