    “Early Literacy for Everyone!” workshops with Saroj GhotingSarojSaveTheDate2015.jpg

    These workshops kick-off KDLA's 3-year initiative known as "School Ready Libraries" that will put our libraries and state on the fast track to an innovative approach towards early childhood education for library staff.  More training opportunities, including an upcoming webinar to introduce the grant, will follow - but don't miss out on this unique opportunity.

  • Picture Book Month:
    Read * Share * Celebrate

    Picture Book Month is an international initiative to encourage everyone to celebrate literacy with picture books during the month of November. Picture books are important because pictures are what initially attract a child to a book and, from there, to the whole process of reading. Contact your local public library for suggestions of age appropriate topics, titles and authors. For more information, visit http://picturebookmonth.com.
