Libraries and City Schools Need a Closer Partnership - City Limits

Libraries and City Schools Need a Closer Partnership - City Limits | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
“ Libraries and City Schools Need a Closer Partnership City Limits The author suggests that underutilized hours at branch libraries overlap with times when neighborhood schools could use more and better-equipped space.”

Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:
I don't think suggesting that schools use public libraries to replace school libraries is a good idea. All schools should have a school library with a qualified librarian. The idea that schools create better links with the public library is a good one. Bringing classes in to use the resources in the public library is a great idea but not at the expense of the school library. We are planning to build on our links with our public library this year.

13 ways to turn talk into action

We are all teachers by degree and experience with a strong identification with that role. We see ourselves as general experts across the curriculum; possibly the only one in the building other than the principal. We know the importance to our students of real world information literacy skills. We have a great deal to offer and sometimes we do not feel like that is seen. We really want to work as part of a team with teachers in our buildings...

How can we impact the thinking and decision-making of those who will be our future co-teachers or our principals or superintendents? How can we work with universities? How can we impact our professional organizations? How can we play a stronger role in content area organizations?
