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.
