The Idaho Commission for Libraries’ Supporting Beginning Readers workshop is a fun, relaxed, one-day workshop designed to help librarians get ready for young readers in the fall. It is open to all school library staff who work in Idaho’s publicly funded elementary schools and is especially helpful to those who are newer to the school library setting.
The agenda will cover:
early literacy development and school library support
circulation policies that increase access to books
choosing high-quality books for young readers
getting the most bang for your buck when purchasing library books
motivating kids to read
an introduction to Novelist Plus K-8
services offered to school libraries from ICfL.
And there might be a free book or two in it for your library!
