The Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit is a suite of
research-backed resources created for library staff to help families
prepare children ages 0 to 8 for success in school and in life. Through
an interactive presentation with hands-on activities, this training
will introduce library staff to the research, practical implications,

ready-to-implement ideas for activities, as well as resources for staff
