Using Storytime Activity Centers to Promote Learning

Offering a craft after storytime is a time-honored tradition in many libraries, but for one Iowa youth-services librarian, it was a reluctant habit. She decided to stray away from the make-and-take craft and opted instead for activity centers that are more suited for 2 and 3-year-olds. These centers, which stem from Iowa’s Every Child Reads or ALA’s Every Child Ready to Read, promote engaging learning and collaborative parent-child interactions.
