Making Literacy-Innovation Connections for Young Patrons in Rural Libraries

 Making Literacy - Innovation Connections for Rural Libraries and Their Youngest Patrons

Welcome to the hub for the Literacy-Innovation Connections project funded, in part, by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and piloted in 10 small rural libraries (mostly during the pandemic)! Librarians and children had great fun piloting the program and all the materials produced and iterated for the pilot are now available to every library, public and school, across the country. In this graphic above, we have organized the products of this grant into handy linkable categories so that you can get started as soon as you wish.

The Innovation Destination was designed and evaluated by a team from the Center for Digital Literacy at the School of Information Studies, Syracuse University and developed by Data Momentum Inc, in partnership with the Connecticut Invention Convention, By Kids for Kids, New York On Tech, and over 70 school librarians and young innovators.

This site has been serving the youth invention community from 2015 - present.
