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 institutes and compilations of early childhood research of interest to librarians, and a wealth of resources to help you advocate for early literacy services in your library and community.
