Volunteer for the CLEL Conference

Are you attending the 2014 CLEL Conference?

If so, you might be interested in being a Conference Assistant. 

What is a Conference Assistant, you ask?  A Conference Assistant greets a presenter and makes sure the presenter has everything she or he needs.  If the presenter needs anything, the Conference Assistant will find the right person to help out.

Being a Conference Assistant is a fun and meaningful way to be more involved in the CLEL Conference.

CLEL Conference Registration Open!

Texting and Early Learning

A recent study at Stanford, explored whether texting early learning activities to parents could help decrease the "word gap."  The initial results show that it does help.  It gives parents a tap on the shoulder reminder to do fun things that promote learning.  Text messages included:

Write the alphabet on paper

Make a letter puzzle

Earlier is Easier

 Denver Public Library is partnering with agencies around the metro area to create a capital campaign entitled Earlier is Easier!  Partners include CLEL, Bright Beginnings, Reach Out and Read and many more.  The campaign is focused on getting the word out about the importance of early learning.  Eventually, they hope to have everything from tip cards to billboards.

Training Opportunity

Join the Pueblo City-County Library District Children and Teen Services staff for a unique training opportunity this Fall!  This training will engage, thrill, and inspire you with new experiences to take back to your libraries - to reinvigorate your programming.  Libraries are all about sharing, right?  So there will be a chance for everyone to share their exciting and innovative ideas.
