San Antonio Public Library Director to Attend National Forum on Closing the Opportunity Gap for Early Readers

Ramiro S. Salazar received personal invitation to attend Library forum in Washington D.C.

“The San Antonio Public Library continues to be a leader in early childhood literacy initiatives nationwide,” said Salazar. “An important part of the Library’s mission is to empower the San Antonio community with an increased awareness of, and the tools to support, early literacy skills. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in this discussion at a national level and to play a role in developing a future plan of action to ensure that every child has access to the support they need to become lifelong readers.”

The forum will focus on three distinct areas of discussion:

  • Library literacy services most needed to help K-3rd grade students get back on track and stay on track with grade-level reading curriculum.
  • Key obstacles for public libraries to reach and engage low-income students.
  • Recommendations and strategies for building stronger library-school-community partnerships to improve the reading achievement of low-income K-3rd graders, building on the foundations established via the ConnectED Library Challenge.

The result of the forum will be a call-to-action publication to be released in the early part of 2017. This forum is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and includes Council of the Great City Schools as a partner organization and will provide for support travel expenses for this forum.

“I am extremely honored to be representing San Antonio at this forum,” said Salazar. “I hope the innovative work and accomplishments of the San Antonio Public Library as a department of the City of San Antonio will inspire other public libraries around the world.”

The San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) changes lives through the transformative power of information, imagination and ideas. SAPL accomplishes this mission by remaining innovative and responding to the ever-changing needs of the community.

SAPL will be sharing stories and images from Salazar’s trip via Twitter @MySAPL. Be sure to also like us at Facebook.com/mysapl or follow us on Instagram @MySAPL.
