Sharon Colvin, Youth Services Consultant at the Vermont Department of Libraries, presented two programs on Library Programming and the Developing Child. Babies, todllers and school aged children are hard at work interacting with the world. How can the library support that development as they reason, communicate and play? Continuing development of children as they conquer cognitive, social and emotional hurdles were discussed as well as how to improve, expand and re-branding existing library programs.Sharon Colvin has a Master's in Mind Brain and Education from Harvard University as well as a MLS. She has been working with children her entire life and has been a Youth Services Librarian for 8 years.
