Washington County Cooperatives Library Services<https://www.wccls.org/home> (WCCLS), in partnership with OregonASK<https://oregonask.org/>, received a federal Library Services and Technology Act grant from the State Library<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/LSTA/index.aspx> to research and develop resources for public libraries and out-of-school time programs to implement evidence-based literacy programs for children in K-3rd grade who are learning to read.

WCCLS is seeking to contract with two children's librarians and two reading specialists-one children's librarian and one reading specialist must speak, read, and write proficiently in both Spanish and English. These four contractors will work with an evaluator and under guidance from the project managers (Bryce Kozla and Katie Anderson) and OregonASK staff (Katie Lakey and Susan Zundel) to deliver:

*         A research/literature review of the reading process, English language learners, culturally responsive literacy activities, evidence-based literacy activities, and how adult family members can support K-3rd grade students are learning to read. [Reading specialists]

*         A research/literature review of best practices in culturally responsive literacy-based library programs and out-of-school time programs for K-3rd grade students that support children who are learning to read. [Children's librarians]

*         Resources for public library staff and out-of-school time providers to plan, implement, and evaluate research-based literacy programs for K-3rd grade students. The resources will be linguistically and culturally responsive, with specific attention to Latino children and children who speak Spanish at home. [All]
