Partners

Strategic partnerships and alliances have been established between the California State Library and numerous other state and national organizations that share a similar early childhood, family-focused mission. Through these relationships, the message and impact of the ELF initiative is strengthened.

Benefits include:

  • A wealth of valuable educational materials and resources relevant to the ELF initiative and accessible to public libraries;
  • Professional expertise in child development, health, early education and parenting that supports and informs library-specific training and tools;
  • Expanded advocacy for libraries as early learning community resources;
  • Increased awareness for early learning concepts and practices, reaching a broader audience of providers and families; and
  • Additional funding opportunities made possible by inter-agency collaborations.
