Hear about the University of Washington’s Valuable Initiatives in Early
Learning that Work Successfully (VIEWS2) research study that validates what
you already knew: Storytimes can provide many opportunities to help
children develop early literacy skills. Learn about ways to increase the
effectiveness of your storytimes, and daily interactions by adding simple
behaviors that will have a large impact. VIEWS2 visited CSD at the
beginning of the study, now hear about the culmination of the research, and
take home tools that will help you enrich and evaluate your storytimes.

Storytime Training and Support

Not every librarian can do every storytime that would fully meet their
community's needs. Often we need support staff and volunteers to provide
storytimes to non-English families and/or target audiences. Learn about
Multnomah County Library's storytime training program that helps staff
deliver early literacy rich storytimes. Hear about some of the continuous
challenges that these staff face, and let's talk about ways we can support
our colleagues to get the resources and support they need to serve a wider

Mechanics of Summer Reading Programs

How does your library’s Summer Reading Program work?  When does it start?
When does it end?  How do kids participate?  Do you track time spent
reading or pages read? Do you have another way to track participation? Are
you trying anything new this year? What are some of your biggest challenges
that you wish you could ease?

Help your SRP peers by sharing the nuts and bolts of your Summer Reading
Program.  Do you have a super-cool game board you’d love to share?  Now is
the time to bust it out and wow your colleagues!

Registration is FREE, lunch on your own.
