Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood
ALSC collaborated with Fred Rogers Productions and Grand Communications to develop a suite of materials to support the theme of “Family” for new episodes of the PBS KIDS series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood that will premiere in September. ALSC encourages children’s librarians to incorporate the resources into programming with children and their families. ALSC’s Early Childhood Programs and Services Committee and the Quicklists Consulting Committee contributed to content development.

ALSC receives many requests to collaborate and we only select those collaboration requests that are most beneficial to our members and align with our mission. We do not consider requests to promote or advertise an organization or product.
If your organization is working on a national project that considers the needs of libraries beyond advertisement, and you are interested in collaborating with ALSC, please complete this online request form. All collaboration requests are vetted by the ALSC office and only those that best reflect the ALSC mission and within our limited resources will be considered by the ALSC Board at their next scheduled meeting. This process takes several months.
