Rural Library Summit: Accelerating 3rd Grade Reading Outcomes in Rural Places<https://www.berea.edu/pfe/librarysummit/>
December 10, 2020
1-5 PM ET
The Rural Library Summit is a half-day celebration of the impact libraries have on the aspirations of young people and a recognition of their contribution to third grade reading outcomes, especially for students in rural communities. Research has shown that children who read on or above grade level in third grade triple their chances of attending college. The Summit will explore how libraries can grow their impact on third grade reading leveraging community support and resources. Participants will learn about and connect with a range of opportunities with regional and national organizations, including the newly launched Rural Library Fellowship. The program will support the efforts of 22 Fellows to engage in initiatives to increase third grade reading in their communities.
