ASCEL Workshop: Making an Early Start on The Library Journey. London. Monday 21st March 2016

Wednesday, 3 February, 2016

Join us to shape and develop the library offer for parents-to-be

During the last year we’ve been working with Arts Council England to identify the library journey children should experience from the time they are born onwards. We’ve identified key points in the journey where public libraries should have some kind of special offer to children - for example Rhymes Times for the under-fives, Summer Reading Challenge for primary age children.

One of the areas that we have not tackled nationally is the pre-natal time - and engaging with parents to be around the importance of sharing books with tiny babies, singing to your bump etc. 

We think there is a lot we could do, so join us on 21st March at our free, one-day workshop to shape and develop the library offer for parents-to-be.
