Firing on All Cylinders: Making Reading Matter
Alison Brumwell, Librarian, Freelance Education and Literacy Consultant
"I hate reading." "Reading is boring". Being seen in the library is social suicide". are some direct quotes from young reluctant readers. How librarians, both school and public, can effectively engage with hard-to-shift children of all ages and develop strategies for firing them up is what this webinar is all about. When the demands of the curriculum, staff shortages, budget management, access and the day-to-day management of a busy library leave increasingly less time for reader development it's even more important to create stimulating, positive reading opportunities and make the most of your lending collections.
