The National Center for Families Learning (NCFL) will hold this year’s Families Learning Summit on October 17-19, 2016, in Detroit, Michigan. But if you can’t be there in person, you’ll be pleased to know that the Urban Libraries Council (ULC) will webcast a free panel session – “Libraries + Schools + Communities = Powerful Programming for Family Learning" -- from 11:00-12:15 p.m. EDT on Monday, October 17, 2016.
The session, sponsored by Better World Books, will build upon concepts highlighted in ULC and NCFL’s recently published Leadership Brief: Libraries Supporting Family Learning and showcase how libraries, schools, and community-based organizations collaborate to help families learn together and engage with their communities.
Online participants will also have the opportunity to submit questions to the panelists during the session in real time. (Click here for more information on the webcast’s panelists.)
And if you’re interested in attending in person – the summit will cover everything from adult education, early literacy, and digital learning to community coalitions and family engagement research – you can get started by registering here.
