Storytime Foundations - free one-day conference in Columbus, April 30

Registration is open for Storytime Foundations, a FREE one-day conference on everything storytime, planned and produced by Ohio Ready to Read! 

Storytime Foundations will take place in Columbus on Tuesday, April 30. 

Build a strong foundation in your storytime programs. Whether you are new to storytime planning or you’ve been doing it for years, this professional development event will give you an opportunity to learn new ideas, refresh yourself on storytime techniques, and network with others from around the state. Based on the Five Practices from the Every Child Ready to Read initiative, you will gain knowledge in the areas of playing, reading, writing, talking, and singing.

Keynote speakers Dr. Laura Justice (Crane Center for Early Childhood Research and Policy, Ohio State University) and Dr. Katie Campana (School of Information, Kent State University) will contextualize your important work in support of young children and their families. Librarian-led breakout sessions will explore storytime applications of the Five Practices.
