Early Literacy Calendars - April and 2017 Contributors

The 2016 Early Literacy Calendar authored by youth services librarians like you is full of activities and ideas that foster early literacy skills. They inspire parents, grandparents, and caring adults of all kinds to interact with babies and children in intentional ways to support literacy development. These calendars are free to use and distribute. Some Wisconsin librarians use them in their storytimes, some put them in their newsletters, and some share them with their library patrons as a handout. We'd love to hear how you use the Early Literacy Calendar at your library and we'd love to have you participate in the creation of the 2017 calendar if you are a member of the Youth Services Section, and if you're not already then please consider becoming one. The benefits are many!

Contribute to the Early Literacy Calendar 2017
Interested in being the author of your very own month in the 2017 Early Literacy calendar? YSS needs a few more contributors, so this is your chance!

Don't be shy! We want to tap the talents of the amazing librarians we've got all around the state, and this is a perfect, low-stress way to get involved with YSS. Nervous you don’t have great ideas to bring to the table? Nonsense! Previous calendars are available for inspiration, and if you’re working with kids and families at your library, we want you!

Please contact Katherine at katherineelchert (at) ricelakegov (dot) org or Kelsey at kelsey (at) lacrosselibrary (dot) org to volunteer. Thanks!
