Webinar: Early literacy development in African Libraries – Survey Findings

Join us on the 2021 International Literacy Day, 8th September 2021 at 10:30 (GMT) to discuss the findings from a survey we recently conducted find out what infrastructure and early literacy practices exist in African libraries.

African Library and Information Associations and Institutions (AfLIA) and NBA ran a survey as a baseline study for an Early Literacy Development course for African Librarians. The survey was driven by country champions who ensured that public and community libraries in 18 countries participated.

In this webinar, we will discuss the champions who drove the survey, the countries that participated, how many public and community libraries have story hour activities, what they do during the story hour programme, and attendance to such programmes, as well as staffing and other critical issues in these libraries.
