Program/Service Notes:

As part of our goal to \Raise Readers\", WEIU TV Educational Services is helping parents, teachers, and other caregivers use public television resources to help children love learning. WEIU TV builds partnerships between East Central Illinois local public television station and community organizations such as child care centers, their schools, libraries, businesses, civic groups, and government agencies. To extend the educational impact of the program \"beyond the screen\", WEIU TV conducts training workshops to help parents, teachers, and caregivers use TV as a positive force in children's lives through reading, music, art, and discussion. WEIU TV collaborates with local child care providers, Head Start programs, schools, libraries, museums, and national organizations to extend the community-based learning opportunities. WEIU TV distributes program user's guides, activity sheets, and media literacy information to complement programming. The station participates in the \"First Book\" program, which distributes free books to children in need."
