Funded by the Library Services and Construction Act, the 1997 Florida Library Youth Program is an extension of the successful and long-running Florida Summer Library Program to help librarians provide year-round programs for elementary school-aged children. The goal of the program is to introduce children to the library and its services, and to encourage them to read books. The manual is intended as a guide for program coordinators and librarians. This edition focuses on the many ways that people communicate, in the present, past, and future. The manual includes the following sections: (1) What Do You Say?; (2) Drop a Line; (3) Express Yourself; (4) Over the Wire; (5) Code Talk; (6) Mixed Messages; (7) What's in a Name?; (8) Messages from Beyond; (9) Animal Banter; and (10) Voices from the Past. Each section includes the following activities, with book and presentation ideas recommended for each: storytelling, presentations, "read-alouds," poetry, jokes, riddles, songs, book-talks, informational books, "read-alones," crafts, activities, displays, community resources, music, recordings, films, videos, additional professional resources, and craft and game sheets. A bibliography which contains approximately 465 titles, arranged alphabetically by title, also serves as an index. A section on working within copyright law, and a sample permission letter and release form are also provided. (SWC)
