Close to Home: Library-Based Family Literacy. An Instructional Video for Library-Based Family Literacy Programs. [Videotape.]
American Library Association Video/Library Video Network, Towson, MD.
This videtape is a guide hosted by Judy Woodruff to starting and enhancing a library-based family literacy project. Librarians and literacy providers learn: how to do a needs assessment, how to build a team within the library; how to develop a community coalition; how business partners contribute to family literacy programs; and how to recruit participants. Family literacy consists of education for adults, literacy activities for children, and time for children and parents to read together. The videotape features models from the Bell Atlantic/American Library Association Family Literacy Project, a partnership established to encourage local solutions to the problems of low literacy. Possible community partners include Head Start centers, well-baby clinics, community action agencies, teen parenting programs, churches and food pantries, and many others. (Author/SWC)
