A Librarian's Planning Handbook for a Read-to-Me Club.
Many librarians would like to provide a reading club which includes not only reading patrons, but pre-reading or read-to-me patrons and those parents, family members and caregivers that care for, work with and read to them. To help library staff and volunteers organize, implement and manage a read-to-me club, this planning handbook is intended to give interested staff and/or volunteers information specifically on this group of patrons, information on the type of library service appropriate for this type of patron, and references to appropriate material. This handbook examines all aspects of a read-to-me program as outlined in the following chapters: (1) "What Is a Read-to-Me Program?"; (2) "Why a Read-to-Me Program in Reading Environment?"; (3) "Program Goals, with Sample Objectives and Activities"; (4) "Programming for Read-to-Me's with Parents, Family Members, and (or) Caregivers: Focus on the Child"; (5) "Programming: Focus on the Family"; (6) "Planning"; (7) "Finding and Keeping Your Audience"; (8) "Scheduling Your Program"; and (9) "Guidelines." A 13-page annotated bibliography refers the reader to related materials. An appendix contains goals and objectives, information on young children, and blank forms. (MAS)
