Bringing Literacy to Life
Bringing Literacy to Life is a free series of professional development workshops for early childhood educators to learn how to make their classroom activities literacy-rich, presented by PQAS-certified instructors. Participants will learn how reading, writing, singing, playing, and talking strengthen pre-literacy skills from birth to age five, and how to implement these skills in their classrooms. Each workshop will focus on one early literacy practice, and participants will receive PQAS credits. Visit pakeys.org to register for the workshop.

Storytimes are library programs for young children and their caregivers that use books, songs, rhymes and fingerplays to create literacy experience.
