Walking the Road between Libraries: Best Practices in School and Public Library Cooperative Activities
Bush, Gail
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v22 n6 p25-28 Feb 2006
The American Association of School Librarians (AASL)/Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC)/Young Adult Library Service Association (YALSA) Joint Task Force on School/Public Library Cooperative Activities has been collecting and disseminating information about cooperative activities around the country since the first meeting in January 2004. The author is a part of this small group of people working to communicate information about best practices in school and public library cooperative activities in a meaningful way. Their charge was to create a clearinghouse of ideas, activities, programs, and services. They agreed to blitz the national listservs in children and youth services as well as school library media centers to request input on existing programs, cautionary tales, favorite stories, and upcoming activities. In this article, the author offers a few examples of libraries from their clearinghouse with direct contact information.
