Research & Advocacy
Stay current with evidence-based research on how young children learn, and how early experiences impact later school achievement and reading success. The appropriate use of relevant research helps libraries:
- Understand young children's development and learning
- Create responsive, successful library programs and services
- Share with decision makers why library early literacy activities are so important
Here are some of the most helpful, focused compilations of early literacy research of interest to librarians, and a wealth of resources to help you advocate for early literacy services in your library and community.
