A Unique Partnership between Schools and the Community Library: The Biglerville Elementary School Community Library Program. An Evaluative Report.
Jaffe, Lawrence; Tassia, Margaret
The Biglerville Community Library Project was a cooperative effort between the Upper Adams School District and the Adams County Public Library (Pennsylvania). Its goal was to create a library service program for the underserved residents of the Biglerville community. The objectives of the program were: (1) to continue to strengthen the on-going program at the Biglerville Elementary School; (2) to enhance the program's ability to provide services to clients not served at the elementary level; (3) to increase the number of residents participating in the use of a library system by providing materials for the target clients; (4) to increase the depth and scope of information resource sharing at the high school and adult levels; (5) to enhance already existing resources with core collections from the Adams County Library System; and (6) to promote reading both at school and at home with educationally sound materials and programs. This report contains the following sections: a brief literature review; program description; methodology, including governance, services, staff, collection and resources, location and facilities, budget, and marketing; evaluation; personal observations from library users; conclusions; recommendations; and a framework for future cooperative ventures.
