The Advocate's Toolbox

Engaging Reluctant Readers in Your Library

Presented by: Thorndike Press, Library Journal & School Library Journal
Event Date & Time: Wednesday, August 30th, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

Reaching all young readers can be challenging. Attend this live one-hour webcast to explore ways to help increase interest in all YA and middle readers in your public or school library. You will hear from public and school librarians on how they reach their reluctant and struggling readers and how they work together to ensure every reader is engaged. Large print will be an area of focus and a brief readers’ advisory of new titles will be shared.
