This kit was developed by ALSC and PLA to assist and empower public library staff to serve Spanish-speaking families providing an effective manual that contains instructions in English for the presenter and Spanish translation of the slides, handouts and booklist. The Toolkit includes powerpoint presentations that will allow library staff, even those who do not speak Spanish, to present the workshops. We offer tips on reaching families as well as on ways to interact with Spanish-speaking families during your Todos los niños listos para leer en tu biblioteca workshops.
