Visibility is a synonym for advocacy. Collaboration between school and public libraries keeps you and your library program visible within the district and community.
Agree? Disagree? You can hear more this fall as Library Journal’s 2013 Movers and Shakers
Rose Luna and Margaux DelGuidice present at LILRC’s 22nd Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future. You’ll hear more on how they’ve managed to reach out and build strong connections in their community. That includes engaging not only students, parents and school board members, but other libraries as well.
Yet another connection they’ve made: both Rose (Freeport High School) and Margaux (Garden City High School) also work part-time at the Freeport Memorial Library. So they mean it when they say, “Partnerships between school and public libraries show that collaborative relationships build strong communities.”
Join us October 24-25th at Dowling College for Community by Design: Innovation & Transformation, LILRC’s 22nd Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future.
