Library of Virginia Early Literacy Conference

This Wednesday, August 29, I am presenting at the Library of Virginia Early Literacy Conference.  I am very much looking forward to meeting with Virginia librarians, and hope this information will be helpful!  For your convenience, here is the PowerPoint presentation, which can be downloaded from Slideshare.net.


Serving Latino Children and Families in Virginia Libraries from Katie Cunningham

***ALSO***  During this presentation, I discussed some resources for library staff who do not speak Spanish who are serving Spanish-speaking customers.  One that I discussed is the PDF file of a Spansh/English pointing guide available through Webjunction.  Click on the link to access a page where you can download the entire guide.  Also, Webjunction has another page full of Spanish language resources.  An additional site that may be of interest to non-Spanish-speaking staff serving Spanish-speakers is PLUS - Public Libraries Using Spanish.  This online database has many library documents in Spanish that organizations can use as templates in creating resources for your own organization.
