This is a reference site for children’s and teen public librarians in Westchester County, featuring upcoming events, notes from monthly youth services meetings and links to frequently used materials.
Survey – Please complete by January 14, 2017
Programming for young children is a high impact (and high volume) activity for public libraries. Over the next few years, WLS has funding from NYS to provide additional professional development opportunities for all library staff in support of service for children ages 0-60 months (and their parents).
Please help us fine-tune what is offered in support of the 145+ members of the WLS member library youth services community. Linked here is a brief survey to benchmark current activities and awareness of early literacy practices. We’d like this survey to be completed by all youth services staff that delivery programming to children and teens – full-time and part-time.
Responses are requested by January 14. (Those who provide a completed survey by the deadline will be entered in a drawing for a $50 iTunes gift card.)
