Based on her experiences as a children’s librarian in public libraries and children’s museums for more than 25 years, Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen believes that the best way to learn is through play.

Member of the ALSC Early Childhood Services and Programs Committee, her website is www.mgol.net and Twitter handle is @MGOtL.

Pamela Hamlin is the Family Literacy Specialist for the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System. For 25 years, she has worked in the early education field as a teacher and administrator, teen parent resource and referral counselor, trainer, and librarian. One aspect of her current position is providing early literacy workshops for caregivers, librarians, and early childhood educators based on ALA’s  "Every Child Ready to Read" program. Pam is a new member of ALSC’s Early Childhood Services and Programs Committee.
 
Brooke Newberry, an early literacy librarian in La Crosse, Wisconsin, is a fan of anything involving little ones under 5. Self appointing herself “The Beyoncé of Babies”, she loves to sing, dance, and play at every storytime and throughout the day as well. She is currently chair of the ALSC Early Childhood Services and Programs Committee. You can find her at Reading With Red (readingwithred.blogspot.com) and on Twitter as @be_newberry.
