Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy strives to support library staff. We share the latest research, resources and early literacy learning opportunities available to library staff who work with young children, parents and caregivers.
CLEL members are frequent trainers for Colorado State Library Youth Services workshops, and have provided workshops and presentations at library and early childhood conferences.
