Outreach to childcare centers and preschools can be more than just a storytime. This webinar will help you begin to think about ways you can bring elements of the library experience, such as browsing and checking out books, getting a library card, or participating in a reading program to childcare centers and preschools in your area. Offering more than a storytime allows you to connect with children and families who may not already be library users, strengthen relationships among childcare providers in your community and the library, and spread early literacy advocacy beyond your walls.
