Summary or Abstract : Working from Epstein's Theory of Overlapping Spheres of Influence, twenty-six Maryland public librarians from urban, suburban, and rural counties were studied to investigate their story-time and outreach practices intended to help children with school reading readiness. Primary data collection for this multiple-case study took place over eight months and involved semi-structured interviews and observations made by the researcher, as well as the review of library outreach documents. Interviews were transcribed, and along with observation data, coded to identify similarities and differences among librarians' practices.he study found that librarians were implementing the information obtained during the training session into their story-time and outreach practices, thereby incorporating current standards for kindergarten readiness. Furthermore, librarians reported that the training provided them with a deeper understanding of the importance of outreach to young children and families placed at-risk, and that they were engaged in a variety of outreach activities. Funding for additional library staff and professional development, as well as increased volunteer support would assist librarians in providing more frequent library-based activities, and more targeted outreach to support children's early literacy development.
