During the first two-day RFHF training, children’s library staff and Healthy Start family support workers were asked: “In an ideal situation, how could libraries and Healthy Start partner to provide early literacy information and services to new parents?” Read the notes from this activity
to learn what projects family support works and library staff would like to partner on. (RFHF Participants, these are your "cookies
", and those from all other cohorts too.)
Healthy Start family support workers and children's library staff can partner to:
- Promote each others' programs, resources, and services to the families they serve.
- Provide each other with brochures, books, and other resources to distribute to the families they serve.
- Develop and implement a program together such as a storytime, book delivery, or early literacy workshop for parents/caregivers.
