PPT for the AASL 2009 Conference Session, "Growing Learners Together: Successful School & Public Library Partnerships."
One library is never enough. It takes two (and sometimes more) for a successful workable productive alliance. Learn the secrets behind nationally successful school and public library partnerships--from early childhood and teen parenting programs, Every Family
Reads one-author program, community reading projects, and Books 2 U book talking services. Ideas that can be implemented in
individual libraries or through a system –wide approach will be described.
Links to successful partnership programs, which will be shared, are housed on the newly reorganized ALSC Website at
http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alsc/initiatives/partnerships/coopacts/schoolplcoopprogs.cfm. Be inspired by this showcase of programs adaptable for your library.

  • Identifies, develops, promotes and disseminates information on effective cooperative or collaborative projects that link schools and public libraries. Maintains and updates the resources that have been compiled on the ALA website, develops training workshops and/ or programs on cooperative or collaborative projects and presents them at conferences and institutes and for other organizations serving youth, and details findings in articles and books for division publications.
  • This conference is held annually in the late fall. The schedule for the day is similar from year to year: book sales, kickoff speaker, two 1-hour book discussion sessions (ranging from picture books to books for teens), lunch, keynote author presentation and author signing. There are other times during the day when books may be purchased as well. Attendees are able to pre-order books by the featured author by filling out a form on the registration sheet, insuring that the books they wish to buy will be available at the Conference.
  • Demo BOOK DISCUSSION CLUBS The Basalt Regional Library District has funding for programming, but they are short on space and have a difficult time getting interested teems to remember to attend programs.  The local middle school has little funding and less staff, but plenty of space and students available.  For the past two years, the school and public library have partnered to hold a book club once a week during the students’ lunch periods during the winter months.  The teens in the book club are allowed to go first in the lunch line and then bring their lunches into the library.  The 5th and 6th graders meet together for one club and the 7th and 8th graders meet together for the other club. The students vote on which books to read, and the public library provides a copy of the book for each student.  The teens set the pace for reading, and they do well discussing on their own with occasional guidance from either the school or public librarians; both librarians read each title so the book club can take place even if there is a librarian’s absence.  The last meeting of each year is spent evaluating the club and talking about the public library (and getting ideas for programming there). Gradually, there has been an increase in the number of teens remembering to attend library programs, and many participants are either from the book club or friends of someone in the book club.
