"To create my piece I initially researched and collected images & information on libraries, storytelling and literacy. Wanting to combine these in a simple way, I chose to focus on a storytelling circle with the children holding books containing the word 'vote' each with the upper & lowercase letters showing visually that storytelling aids literacy.

Libraries can be an extremely important resource for everyone, from early literacy through to continuing adult education and to be able to bring these ideas to a new, wider audience through my design and the project is really important for the education, knowledge, ideas and thoughts of this generation and all those to come." -Louise Norman

Libraries are at the heart of early childhood education in our communities. Librarians are often the first teachers for preschoolers, helping kids from all backgrounds develop early literacy skills and to grow in a love of reading. VoteLibraries means that from pre-K to college, our librarian have the resources they need to make sure that story time is more than just fun - it's literacy and learning for all our kids.
