Webinar Archive: Supporting English Language Learners

Today we had another great session from Dr. Laura Meyers, who was joined by ESOL teacher Felicia Baiden. Here’s the webinar description:

If “it takes a village” is your motto, then it’s important to consider how librarians can support their young learners by supporting their young learners’ families. By exploring and celebrating your community’s cultures with the families in your community, you can welcome more and more families into your facility and place books into the hands of your neighbors. Families visiting the library already recognize the importance of literature, so we will explore additional strategies, tips, and resources for developing literacy and language skills at home.

Presentation materials will be available shortly.
