Partnerships between Public Libraries and Schools: Working Together to Improve Literacy Outcomes
Literacy 2030 has focused on early literacy (birth to five) for the past few years and has provided resources, held community events, and highlighted community indicators related to this area. In 2018-2019, we move to our second focus area of grade-level literacy (Kindergarten-Grade 5). Join us for this second webinar in a series of three that describes the planning and implementation of successful partnerships between public libraries and public schools.
This webinar will:
- Highlight public library-school partnerships that are occurring in South Carolina
- Provide evidence-based, effective strategies for book clubs and literature circles
- Provide examples, resources, and tools for developing or enhancing public library-school partnerships
- Seek ideas and insights about partnership efforts in libraries in South Carolina and gain information about the needs of libraries in initiating and implementing these types of partnerships and programs
Libraries are invited to share examples of what they are doing and to express supports that are needed.
