Webinar – Best Practices in Book Giving Programs
Does your organization provide books to children in your community? Are you considering a book giving strategy to support children’s summer learning? Our new guide, Summer Counts: A Guide to Support Summer Learning Through Book Giving, can help.
NCECF worked with Book Harvest of Durham to create this new guide. With all the skills and know-how of Book Harvest, the guide features nine research-supported best practices in book giving. Book Harvest’s signature initiative, Books on Break, highlights these best practices in action. You’ll also learn about what supports parent want to help their children keep learning over the summer. And there are plenty of resources to help you improve, scale-up or start a book giving program.
NCECF and Book Harvest hosted a webinar on Monday, February 25th to release the guide. Featured presenters included:
- Rachel Stine, Program Director for Book Harvest
- Catriona Moore, English Language Resource teacher at Forest View Elementary School in Durham.
Forest View Elementary has participated in Books on Break since its inception in 2012.
