Building Blocks Workshop, April 16

You are invited to attend this exciting workshop - come celebrate spring and connect with your colleagues before the summer library program begins!

Building Blocks: Incorporating Early Math Skills Into Library Programs When it comes to math achievement, recent reports indicate that American students trail their peers in other parts of the world. Whether it's including counting activities and appropriate concept books in preschool programs or creating after school activity programs for older kids, public libraries are perfectly situated to address these academic shortcomings by including very early math (and science!) skills in their library story times and other programs for youth.

Join us in Madison for a fun-filled day in an inspiring venue to learn more about early math and discover ways to seamlessly weave math and science concepts into your library's programs. It's easy as 1-2-3 and there will be no pop quizzes or required textbooks!
