Meet the Millennials: Early Literacy Success Through Parent Engagement

Little kids don’t drive themselves to the library to benefit from our great services. They need parents or caregivers - in 2019, often Millennials - who see the Library as a prime destination. How can we position ourselves to address the needs of Millennials, as individuals or as parents? What are those needs, and how are they being met now?
Join us to learn insights about today's millennial parents and where they go for the parenting information they trust; what technology engages Millennial parents; and the all important drawbacks and recommendations for children under 5 screen time.
Presenters: Rebecca Parlakian, Mary Fellows, Sue Rokos
Rebecca Parlakian is ZERO TO THREE's Senior Director of Programs and develops resources for parents, alongside training of parents and early childhood professionals.
