Literacy Fast Facts

Today I’m super excited, not just because this is my first ever post on Storytime Underground (moment to squeal!), but also because I get to share with you a brand new series!Early Lit Fast Facts

Literacy Fast Facts is a series to bring you quick and dirty statistics and facts about literacy. These super shiny designs are easy to share and use to advocate for the important work that we do as YS librarians. You can share them with your library board, with your community, or with other staff members who maybe aren’t quite sure what goes on in the children’s room… Tuck these away in your toolbox and pull one out when you need a quick boost to engage in a polite, meaningful conversation using your superpowers to change the world for the better…

As we wrap up summer reading at my library and prepare for the utter chaotic amazing-ness of new programs this fall, I find myself taking moments to step back and remember why I do what I do. Today’s Fast Fact reminds us of the long lasting effect of providing books to kids and teaching parents to share those books with their children.
