Play at the Library: Creating Early Literacy Spaces That Invite Learning
note: This workshop was planned
originally for November 1 but was postponed because of Hurricane Sandy.
Libraries have a new understanding of how our role in supporting lifelong learning begins with the very youngest child. Our challenge is to design spaces as well as activities to most effectively support learning for emergent leaders. Play is essential to children's healthy cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development. When our early literacy spaces invite play along with reading, we model effective strategies for family literacy.
Come learn how to engineer a play space, incorporate play into existing children's spaces and activities at the library, and select appropriate active toys - on any budget.
Marisa Conner is Youth Services
Coordinator for Baltimore County Public Library (BCPL). A primary focus
of her work is creating active learning spaces designed to promote early
literacy and school readiness in public libraries. Marisa was responsible
for developing the learning components for the innovative Storyville
installation at BCPL http://bcplstoryville.org.
