Texas Woman's University School of Library and Information Studies, and its partners, the Texas Library Association, and the Dallas Public Library, will recruit and educate 18 librarians specializing in early literacy with cultural sensitivity and competencies to provide library services for communities with underrepresented populations. This project seeks to increase the pool of librarians who can work with the children of low-income populations to nurture the love of reading and the early literacy skills critical to lifelong success.
