The State Library of Ohio is pleased to announce a new online training opportunity on Reimaging School Readiness .

Do you wonder what research really says about how to support school readiness?

The Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit is a suite of research-backed resources created for library staff to help families prepare children ages birth to 8 years for success in school and in life.

Through an online interactive presentation with hands-on activities, this training will introduce library staff to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in the toolkit.

The workshop topics include:

  • key findings from current cognitive and developmental psychology research
  • the implications of those findings for library staff’s daily work
  • practical ready-to-implement ideas for activities
  • resources for staff training and for parents/caregivers

This online training is for library staff who work with children from ages 0 to 8 and their families.

The workshop will be offered twice this spring.

One day session will be held on April 22, 2021
10 a.m. – 3 p.m. includes a lunch break.

Two session will be held on May 11 & 13, 2021
10 a.m. – 12 a.m. each day
