The 2nd Edition of Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library®, released in 2011, builds on the 1st Edition, first introduced in 2004. The 2nd Edition incorporates recommendations that evolved out of an in-depth evaluation of the original initiative and an extensive literature review. Jessica Chamberlain, director of the Northeast Library System, will review the program, highlight the changes that were made in the 2nd Edition, and explain how you can incorporate early literacy education into your library's existing programs.NCompass Live - September 7, 2011.
