Pamela Martin-Diaz

Pamela Martin-Diaz is branch manager of the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, Ind., where she was a major writer of an early literacy grant, funded by the Lilly Foundation, which established early learning centers in branches and purchased materials for parents to use with their young children to promote letter and sound awareness. She developed a set of cards called "Playing with Words on the Go!" designed to help children with phonological awareness as well as the game "Letter Play Sets" (available through Allen County Public Library), both of which help libraries incorporate early literacy in their story times. Pamela has presented workshops and seminars on early literacy in several venues, as well as presented numerous training sessions locally for Head Start and other early childhood providers.
