Preschool Outreach Programmers

This is a group for librarians and library staff who do preschool outreach programming, both including traditional preschool outreach services like story times for children 5 years old and under at preschools and day care centers, as well as other outreach services to the community involving preschool children.

Discussion topics include:

Tween Illinois Librarians

Networking, program sharing, and discussion for library staff working with tweens. We meet four times a year in the suburbs of Chicago to discuss library services to kids in approximately grades 3 to 8. Each meeting has a topic (including a discussion and sometimes a presentation), around-the-table time to discuss our successes and challenges, and a tour of the hosting library.

Library Early Literacy Advocates

Library Early Literacy Advocates (LELA) is a public library networking group comprised of early literacy professionals who support each other's efforts as they explore, evaluate, and create opportunities to raise awareness throughout their communities, utilizing proven practices and evidence-based research in the areas of early literacy, early learning, and brain development.
