Thursday, 1/17/2019

Summer is a critical time for children, and according to research from the National Summer Learning Association, children can lose up to 3 months of their school year learning during this time. Libraries have long embraced their role in the summer learning landscape, and more and more are adding in critical out of school time learning that align to 21st Century Learning Skills, Common Core State Standards or even Next Generation Science Standards. Additionally, NSLA has embraced libraries as valuable community hubs of summer learning and this webinar will talk about the ways in which NSLA can support libraries in the summertime.
