Enhancing Public Library Storytimes To Promote School Readiness


Enhancing Public Library Storytimes to Promote School Readiness: Adult-Child Interactions that Support Child Learning addresses the importance of adult-child interactions and the value of planning library storytimes with adult-child interactions in mind. Using a learning sciences framework, the module presents strategies that can be readily integrated into storytime to enhance child outcomes. The module was developed with funds from a three year research project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (Grant Number: LG-96-17-0199-17).

Target audience: Those from urban, suburban, and rural public libraries, schools, and/or other environments who plan and lead storytimes with groups of young children and/or who work with families with young children.
