This article was recently highlighted in the American Library Association's ALA Direct newsletter.  I thought some of you may find it helpful. There are ideas from a recent conference panel that outline some descriptions of partnerships that the California library community is thinking about.

The Beginning of a Library Partnership Conversation


School and public library partnerships were the buzzwords at last month's California Library Association conference in Sacramento. A packed room of librarians gathered to discuss and debate the pros and cons of school and public library partnerships. There was a panel of five presenters that included a representative/librarian from the California Department of Education, a County Office of Education librarian, a teacher librarian, a public librarian, and a district librarian. During the session the panel encouraged everyone to talk about what is working, what's not, what needs to happen to move forward, and how we can work together to make it happen. Once the audience understood that they were part of this conversation, they quickly shared ideas, dreams, and concerns.
