Joint-Use Libraries
Casstevens, Susan
Knowledge Quest, v46 n2 p62-71 Nov-Dec 2017
The joint-use library is a place where people of all ages, interests, and income levels can find items of interest at no personal cost. The mission of A. H. Meadows Public and High School Library in Midlothian, Texas, is to offer what other public libraries provide: educational and entertainment resources to a community. Yet, the staff also wants the library to be seen as an effective school library that enhances the high school curriculum and helps improve student achievement. This article shares examples of how this joint-use library has partnered with the nine school libraries in Midlothian and addresses proposed guidelines for combined school/public libraries.
