Family Engagement: Public LIbrary Association

The Public Library Association is working to help libraries learn about and implement successful family engagement strategies. The web resources include toolkits, marketing materials, and a report completed with the Harvard Family Research Project.

The resources included here provide a good jumping off point for those getting started with family engagement and/or for those who are trying to gain support for increasing family engagement activities through the library.
