Family Literacy SeminarDownload presentation | podcast
On 29 April, we enjoyed an inspirational seminar by Mylee Joseph from the State Library of NSW. Mylee described the range of community outreach activities to promote reading that the public libraries are undertaking all over NSW. One of the growing and very successful initiatives that many libraries are involved in is 'family literacy' - which takes different forms depending on the different cultural mix of people in the various local areas. Mylee has generously provided us with a copy of the paper for her presentation. The audio recording of her presentation is also available.
