Outreach

While in-house library programs are a valuable way to get the early literacy message across, how do we reach families that don’t walk through our doors? We bring the message to them through outreach!
 
Outreach can include presenting early literacy storytimes at preschools and Head Starts and teaching parent/caregiver trainings in partnership with Early Childhood Councils. However, outreach can also mean smaller ventures like having a supply of handouts ready for informal chats with parents at a community event.
 
Outreach is a great way to get involved in and raise the library’s profile in the community and to ensure that the early literacy needs of ALL children (not just those who are able to visit the library) are being met.
