Greetings!  The Public Library Association (PLA) is offering a FREE webinar on Family Engagement on December 6th!  See below for detail.

Tuesday, 12/6/2016
*        1:00 PM-2:00 PM (Eastern)
Are you interested in increasing your outreach to families? Are you wondering how you might elevate family voice in the work that you do? Are you thinking about how to develop stronger community partnerships in support of families?
If so, then this webinar will benefit you. In their recent report Public Libraries: A Vital Space for Family Engagement<http://www.hfrp.org/librarycta>, Harvard Family Research Project and the Public Library Association outlined five important processes that build successful family engagement pathways:

  *   Reach out,
  *   Raise up,
  *   Reinforce,
  *   Relate, and
  *   Reimagine.
This webinar will explore how these practices are being implemented in early childhood programs and libraries, and offer practical ideas that you can use to build family engagement pathways in the learning setting you work in.
