i'd love to hear from school districts with great relationships with their public library.
Kristen McCloskey's comment, March 15, 2013 10:01 AM
Proud to say our high school library offers many of these services. We need to work much more on bridging the gap with the community.

"Yet the promise of libraries is in peril because school libraries are in crisis; a threat to one type of library is a threat to all libraries. School libraries across the country are at a critical point. On one hand, budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or de-professionalize school libraries. On the other hand, the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology have opened an unprecedented door to school librarian leadership."
