The Jan Jablonski Early Literacy Training Center
(MORE good news for children and reading)
On a Mission To Help Readers Grow
To honor Jan Jablonski, the Foundation's Co-President and founding member of the Board who passed away in July, 2016, MCPL has announced that Noyes will house the Jan Jablonski Early Literacy Training Center, to create, model and export best-practice early literacy training for librarians and library science students, early childhood educators, daycare providers and, of course, parents.
For now, the Center will be a growing collection of resources on early literacy to be housed at Noyes and made available through the trained children's librarians there. As the Foundation and MCPL continue to design the expanded Library being planned through the Make MORE Noyes Campaign, the Center will take shape as a space within Noyes, a mission based at Noyes, and an amazing opportunity to improve early literacy.
