Evaluation Projects
#77
Project Description:
 
Each branch library conducts an hour-long program for children who have not yet begun to attend school.  We call it Ready to READ hour.  We read to the children, we sign songs, we have an activity and/or craft and we let the children interact with each other in order for them to be ready to start school (pre-K or K) with important skills already learned.  What skills?  Knowledge of their colors, numbers 1-10, sitting still, critical thinking…
We would especially like to establish a love of reading EARLY in the life of a child.  Especially to children who are at risk for not being on grade level reading by 3rd Grade.
 
 
Question/Problem Statement:
What is the question that needs to be answered or the problem that needs be solved?
Are our attempts effective?   Are the children who attend are programs regularly ready for Pre-K or K.  Did their parents or caregivers feel our programs were “value-added” and added to their child’s school readiness above or complimentary to what they were receiving at home?  Were we reaching the intended audience?  Or are our attendees children who already are being taught at home and have the love of reading instilled in them?
 
 
Statement of Why:
Why does the library need this answer/solution? What will the library be able to do after it has this answer/solution?
We have limited resources (staff,  money, time) to invest.  We need to focus on what will give us the biggest bang for our buck.
If we find we are not reaching our target audience then we can hopefully leverage our efforts with other agencies who have a like mission.  We can revamp our content and method.  We can fine tune our program times and market it in the right places.
