Pamela Martin-Díaz is an Early Childhood Literacy Consultant whose workshops are shaped by decades of experience as a children’s librarian and branch manager. She is currently working with Head Start in rural Ohio on a project to expand and deepen the impact of Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. Her workshops are framed by her belief that librarians can help improve young children’s educational outcomes by influencing and inspiring the adults in young children’s lives to share books with them interactively and with intention. Pamela is co-author with Saroj Ghoting of Early Literacy Storytimes@your library: Partnering with Caregivers for Success, ALA Editions, Chicago, IL 2006 and Storytimes for Everyone! Developing Young Children’s Language and Literacy, ALA Editions, 2013. She has a MA in Library Science from the University of Chicago.
