Ideabook: Libraries for Families

Recently, PLA and the Global Family Research Project released a handy new publication called Ideabook: Libraries For Families.  According to the Global Family Research Project the Ideabook "offers a research-based framework to guide libraries’ work in family engagement and shares 54 profiles of the innovative ways that libraries – big and small – support families in promoting children’s learning and development. The book also includes recommendations from library leaders on how to adapt and transform practices in local settings."  The case studies focus on the five "Rs" of engagement (reach out, raise up, reinforce, relate, and re-imagine) and how they are being applied in libraries.
