Books Build Better Brains

Monday, February 11
2:00-3:45pm or 7:00-8:45pm

Join us in the APL lower level meeting room for a dynamic and thought-provoking presentation with Q&A by Dr. Dipesh Navsaria, faculty at UW Madison.

Dr. Navsaria champions the value of literacy for long-term learning and overall well-being. During his hour-long Books Build Better Brains presentation, he will discuss research behind early brain and childhood development and how they affect literacy.

After Dr. Navsaria's presentation, brief overviews on local initiatives will be provided by:

Dr. Sarah Campbell on Reach Out And Read child literacy program
Amy Wilson & Kimberly Quinn on the importance of developmental screening and Read-Talk-Play
Tanya Misselt & Yee Vue on Appleton Public Library's early literacy outreach efforts

Books Build Better Brains is a collaboration between Appleton Public Library, Outagamie-Waupaca Library System, St. Elizabeth Hospital, Appleton Education Foundation and Child Care Resource and Referral.
