LIBRARIES PART OF EARLY LEARNING ON FEDERAL LEVEL

Posted on: May 23, 2012

 The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently recognized the role of public libraries in child development in a memorandum urging partnership between the offices of Child Care and Head Start and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).  The memo states, “Public libraries provide centers for learning in nearly every community in the United States, and it is important for children and families to learn about and recognize public libraries as a valuable resource. Libraries offer rich learning environments for children and their families and caregivers.”

IMLS director Susan Hildreth writes, “I urge all public libraries to reach out to the early care providers in their communities and find innovative and effective ways to work together.”  Read more on the IMLS blog at http://blog.imls.gov/?p=1298
