New Youth Room Book Display
The Youth Room at the Altoona Area Public Library has a fresh new look to its children’s book display section. The shelves now feature books focused on the five literacies of the PA Forward State Initiative. Each column has a label at the top stating the featured literacy and a description of the each including Civic Literacy, Financial Literacy, Health Literacy, Informational Literacy and Basic Literacy. Materials on the rows of shelves below represent the corresponding theme. Titles chosen represent a wide variety of topics and types within the literacy theme and appeal to a wide variety of age groups and reading levels. Youth Room staff is excited to promote the initiative because it’s simple, intentional and practical. Children and families are taking advantage of the convenient displays and staff is quickly replenishing titles to keep educating our patrons on these important concepts.
