From inception to completion, two librarians share their experiences with an IMLS Sparks grant. Shawnee Branch of Allen County Public Library received $23,421 to encourage positive interactions between adults and their young children and promote early learning. From story walks to yard signs and outreach to adults in parks, thrift stores and the farmers’ market, library staff spread the word. Did anyone get the message? Watch and find out!
“This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.”
