Auburn Early Literacy Training Offered for Organizations Serving Kids

Auburn – Preschool teachers, childcare providers, librarians and representatives from other organizations serving children are invited to a free training in Auburn on developing story time activities.

Story Time Success: What’s Behind the Magic? is a half-day class providing practical advice for people interested in developing quality reading activities for kids. Maine State Library Early Literacy Consultant, Shannon Schinagl, will share best practices for hosting story time programming and provide information about resources to help participants with early literacy activities.

The event will be held from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Saturday October 11 at the Auburn Public Library. Lunch will be provided at no charge.
