Bilingual Storytime free webinar on July 29
Webinar: Bilingual Storytimes to Build Early Literacy
2 – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 29
Join your colleagues on July 29 for a free one-hour webinar titled Bilingual Storytimes: Building Early Literacy and Community. Libraries are expanding storytime programming to build early literacy skills in their community. The Mission Branch of the San Francisco Public Library recently added to their popular Bilingual Toddler Tales Program (300–400 attendees!) hands-on literacy activity stations for caregivers to explore. Seattle Public Library has expanded their Summer Reading Program to include bilingual storytimes in Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish. Both libraries have had great success in their early literacy programming and continue to build deep connections with caregivers in their communities. Join Laura Tarango, children's librarian at the Mission Branch, and Valerie Wonder, immigrant and refugee programs manager at Seattle Public Library, as they describe how they assessed the community’s needs, developed and adapted the programs. They’ll also provide practical steps for you to apply to your outreach and programming efforts.
