Library Partnerships: Making Connections between School and Public Libraries
Information Today, Inc.
Connecting to share ideas, resources, and programs offers school and public libraries an exciting means of achieving their own goals as well as those of the community at large. In this timely guide, young adult library consultant Tasha Squires delves into the many possible avenues for partnership, from summer reading programs to book talks to resource sharing and more. Squires's advice is designed to help librarians appreciate, communicate, and build on the benefits of school/public library relationships in order to make the most of tight budgets, create resource rich environments, and promote the development of lifelong learners. Her book is a must-read for school and public librarians who want to successfully connect and collaborate with other youth-focused professionals.
