Librarians helping parents with literacy skills

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Public librarians across the state are learning new ways to help parents increase the early literacy skills of children.

Librarians are attending workshops to learn about the Public Library Association's kit Every Child Ready to Read, 2nd Edition.

It's a program that encourages parents to develop oral language and vocabulary, phonological awareness, letter knowledge and other skills.

The Tennessee State Library and Archives is assisting with the workshops.
