Learning to read is one of the most important skills a person needs to be successful in school, work and life. Public Librarians and teachers have complimentary roles in the reading lives of kids. Teachers focus on teaching kids how to read, and I like to think that librarians focus on encouraging kids to LOVE reading and books. In this webinar, we will go over what science tells us about how kids learn to read, how public libraries can and do support this learning, and discuss ways to increase knowledge and collaboration between schools and libraries.
