Libraries, Hubs and Early Literacy! Oh, my!
Public libraries have an  important opportunity to embed their services and expertise in the statewide effort to improve the literacy levels of young children in Oregon and prepare them to be ready to read and ready to learn.  Think about it… what organization in every community is best prepared and most capable of reaching the largest number of children under school age with literacy materials and  activities?  Libraries!  This is your time to shine.  Please attend the OLA Conference program detailed below.
If your library is already involved in your local early learning hub, please attend and share your success stories. If you are not  connected to your early learning hub, please attend to learn how you can partner with other community organizations to assure that all children in your community have access to early literacy materials and activities.

Eva Calcagno, Director
Washington County Cooperative Library Services
