Apr 1 2017

Authors: Heather B. Weiss, Margaret Caspe, M. Elena Lopez, and Lorette McWilliams

Libraries are no longer just about books—they are increasingly becoming the educational, technological, and social hub of communities across the nation.

The Ideabook

The Ideabook, developed in partnership with the Public Library Association (PLA), offers a research-based framework to guide libraries’ work in family engagement and shares 54 profiles of the innovative ways that libraries – big and small – support families in promoting children’s learning and development. The book also includes recommendations from library leaders on how to adapt and transform practices in local settings.
