Subject: [alsc-l] Webinar: Support Diversity in Your ECE Program With a A Treasure Trove of Free Resources: Libraries and Librarians

This webinar<http://www.earlychildhoodwebinars.com/presentations/libraries-and-preschool-programs-amazing-partnerships-to-support-diverse-young-children-and-families/> is aimed at ECE teachers and administrators about the services that libraries offer that can support diversity in Early Childhood Education.

Do you find yourself searching for great resources to enrich your multicultural or multilingual program? It is a challenge for preschool administrators to find the right materials for the languages and cultures they serve. The solution may be more accessible and affordable than you think: Partner with your local library.  There are so many ways this kind of partnership can help both parties because librarians need to connect with families in your community to provide appropriate activities for ALL of the parents and children. Librarians have the skills and special tools to help your staff discover and use materials and resources they might never have considered before.This just might be the perfect match!

This webinar will help you plan a set of action steps and resources you can use to build partnerships between your preschool programs and your community libraries so you and the teachers in your program can better meet the needs of young dual language learners and their families. Developing strong partnerships with libraries will enrich your program's resources for all of the children without breaking the bank. These partnerships work because the key stakeholders have found ways to share expertise and resources to make maximum use of limited funding and to help each other close the gaps in services for this important and growing segment of our population.
