The Magic of Making Books - Building Literacy Skills One Activity at a Time, One Child at a Time

 Wendy Hodgson-Sadgrove

Language learning and literacy skills begin in infanthood. Learn, through photos, examples, and hands-on activities, how to use a few simple, inexpensive materials and book formats to enhance your library programs and encourage children/teens/parents to continue creating at home.

Speaker:  Wendy Hodgson-Sadgrove is the Assistant Director of Westlock Libraries.  As an experienced Book Artist with expertise in providing interactive workshops, she has integrated both her knowledge of book structures and the need for practical repair solutions into a library setting.   She is an avid reader and a strong believer in the value of public libraries in communities.
