The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives project will improve the school readiness knowledge and skills of public library staff. The project will address the fact that more than half of first-time kindergartners in Kentucky are not ready for school and the lack of Kentucky public library staff training and resources for creating services that will make an impact. The project will provide public librarians with the training and support they need to build effective school readiness programs, centered in an approach that considers all domains of school readiness. Participating library staff will become knowledgeable, engaged, and empowered in efforts to build school readiness skills in their local communities.
