Discussion Hola! Easy Reading @ Wilderness Coast Public Libraries

by Cheryl Turner on Wed, May 26, 2010 at 02:50 pm

Hello or Hola!  I am Cheryl Turner from Wilderness Coast Public Libraries, a 3 county public library cooperative in the North Florida Panhandle.  The population in our 3 counties of Franklin, Jefferson & Wakulla is over 54,600.  We have some permanent Hispanic residents, and also some migrant farm, nursury, seafood processing, road construction, and restaurant workers, some of whom are interested in ELL courses that we would like to introduce and invite to the local libraries.

Jamie Flowler is researching many sources to order dual language books and materials for the libraries.  The former bookmobile manager, Linda Norton (biligual) is going to make 4 visits to each county library and literacy agencies to display new materials, and promote social interaction around the new campaign.  We should have a more detailed action plan done in the next 2 weeks that we will post here.  Thanks so much for including these 3 rural counties in this grant cycle.  It makes a difference!
