This VIRTUAL workshop is split over two days:
Part 1 on Tuesday, August 16 at 10am or 1:30pm (content same both sessions) -  2 hrs / 2 LEUs
Part 2 on Wednesday, August 17 at 10am or 1:30pm (content same both sessions) -  2 hrs / 2 LEUs

You may attend either session on Tuesday, and either session on Wednesday; together they make one complete training (4 hrs / 4 LEUs)!  We do not recommend taking Part 2 without taking Part 1 first.  Recorded versions of both will be available within 30 days of live sessions.  Request the recordings here.

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, and resources offered in the toolkit, which is available in its entirety for free online. Participants will understand key findings from current cognitive and developmental psychology research, reflect on the implications of those findings for their daily work, and gain practical ready-to-implement ideas for activities, as well as resources for staff training and for parents/caregivers. You will benefit from this workshop if you work with children ages 0 to 8 and their families and would like to learn more about how to offer research-backed programming in your library!   2 hr / 2 LEUs.

Registration is now closed.  Due to space limitations, we kindly ask that only Indiana library staff register at this time.
