Library Media Mentors Transform

Learn how the Association for Library Service to Children’s commitment to bridging the 30 million word gap and supporting expanded broadband access to underserved communities place libraries at the natural intersection of early learning, digital media and community transformation. Children’s librarians, in the important role of Media Mentor, are the trusted conduit for families to experience and navigate the wealth of media available to them and their young children. Libraries incorporate media of all types into the menu of high quality content and services they offer while modeling positive parent-child engagement strategies— critical to fostering educational success.
