Join us for the first NCompass Live of 2017, ‘Begin With Books: An Early Literacy Partnership’, on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.
Lincoln City Libraries has worked with the City/County Health Department to encourage early literacy among the low income clients they serve by providing children with free books when they come for their immunization appointments. We also provide books for the clinic waiting room and adult volunteer readers on busy clinic mornings. Find out how to recreate this program in your community, using medical homes to teach young children and their parents about the importance of early literacy. Provider education, literacy handouts, and links back to the library will be discussed.
Presenter: Vicki Wood, Lincoln City Libraries.

- Jan. 11 – Library Improvement Grants for 2017
