Resilient Together: Building School and Public Library Partnerships 2021

October 13, 2021 All day

Apply for a seat in this three-week workshop series.

In this course, we will explore the many benefits of the school and public alliance to drive equitable access to information, improve community outcomes, and achieve learning goals, with an emphasis on digital partnerships and how library collaborations have evolved in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. You’ll learn from the experts how to find partnerships, develop a plan of action, and enact your plan over three weeks through live keynote sessions, an interactive online classroom environment, and live Office Hours with an expert in the field.

The course will follow the continuum of collaboration, from informal partnerships to fully-integrated services, and will take a deep dive into impact and benefits to ensure that you walk away with the tools you need to make the most of your partnership.

In addition, you’ll have immediate access to our Resilient Together Self-Guided Curriculum—a series of webinars from Library Journal and School Library Journal contributors along with rich, supporting materials in the form of readings, activities, and videos—to explore at your own pace. Get access to the Self-Guided Curriculum today and join the live guest speaker sessions and workshop starting October 13.

When you attend this interactive course, you’ll come away with: 

  • A blueprint for how to establish or expand your school-public partnership
  • Key tools and resources you need to help you along the way
  • An understanding of the partnering process, including making the case to stakeholders and dealing with budgetary concerns 

This course features live guest speakers in interactive sessions with Q&A as well as self-guided materials, readings, and discussion topics in an online classroom environment to support you in your journey.

Live Sessions October 13, 20, & 27 from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
