Educators' Spotlight Digest, v3 n1 Win 2008
In this paper, the author shares K-12 strategies for community outreach and describes what school library media specialists can do to expand resources and services beyond their student community. The author first suggests to use Book Fair and other school activities like Open House and Curriculum Night to promote one's library and recruit human resources. Another popular way to reach out to the community is to recruit volunteers to assist in a library media center.
