The Public Library Association and Association for Library Service to Children have identified Six Skills all children need to be prepared to learn to read when they enter school. Letter Knowledge is one of the six skills. During this workshop you will explore fun ways to expose children ages 0-5 to this skill. This workshop will delve into ways to help children recognize the differences between how letters look, their names, and their sounds---all while having fun! This workshop includes a practical make and take. Earn 1.5 hours continuing education by attending.

Child Care Providers and The Library: A Partnership that Works for YOU
The library has many resources to assist child care providers with curriculum planning, but sometimes knowing how and where to find those resources can be a challenge! During this hands-on session, child care providers will learn about resources at the library that can be used to enhance their curriculum and planning. Learn how to search the library catalog, locate library materials and plan activities using these resources. Leave this session with a plan you can use the next day. Participants are encouraged to bring their valid Books2Go library cards or personal library cards. Limited to 15 participants. Earn 2 ½ hours of continuing education by attending.
