Literacy Webinar

From the latest State Library and Archives of Florida newsletter comes this nugget about an upcoming Literacy Webinar.


ALA will sponsor the first international library literacy webcast on Tuesday, April 7, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. EST.

The session, which is titled "Advocacy, Libraries, and Literacy: Literacy for ALL," brings together a diverse group of librarians from public, school, and academic libraries. These advocates and service providers understand the essential role that libraries play in supporting literacy development across the lifespan.

The webcast, which is sponsored by the National Institute for Literacy, will discuss key issues, promote community solutions, showcase innovative partnerships, and issue a call to action for library literacy advocates. To register visit ALA's Build Literacy site.
