Raising Ready Readers webinar

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Event Details

Have you ever heard a child say, "I don't like reading! Reading is so boring!" How many times have you seen a child put their head down, complain, or shut down when presented with a book? To these children, reading is often seen as a chore or punishment rather than as a source of joy. What can we do when these children who dislike or struggle with reading need help? Make it FUN!

In this webinar, Katie Lehman of the Muncie Public Library's Ready Readers program will explore a variety of methods used by the program to engage children in reading in creative and fun ways. Participants will learn different ways that these approaches can be incorporated into their own library's programming. 1 hr / 1 LEU

Presenter: Katie Lehman is the founding leader of the Muncie Public Library's Ready Readers program, a free one-on-one literacy training and reading tutoring service for children ages 1-12. She has spent the last 10 years working with children in various settings including preschools, after school programs, and libraries.
