Heplful Articles on Early Literacy in Public Libraries

Expanding on Early Literacy.
Publication Date: ALSC Journal Summer2012
The article discusses strategies to increase literacy in early childhood education in the promotion of emerging literacy in children. The authors discuss preliteracy skills that increase literacy learning in children such as alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, and vocabulary learning. The authors also discuss strategies for libraries to increase literacy instruction during time spent reading a story to young children. Topics include book handling skills that help children become comfortable with books and print awareness, the use of illustrations to support the learning of vocabulary, as well as the use of alliteration to teach phonological awareness.

Parents, Children, Libraries and Reading. A New Report from the Pew Reasearch Center

Parents of minor children have a special relationship with libraries. Most believe libraries are very important for their children and provide extra resources that are not available at home. Parents are also more likely than other adults to use libraries for services ranging from book borrowing to accessing the internet to attending classes and events – and mothers are considerably more engaged with libraries than fathers.
