As we celebrate week three of School Library Month, let's focus on the very special topic of Making Community Connections at Your School Library!
This year the theme for School Library Month is Making Connections at Your School Library, which brings together four special weeks of School Library Month subthemes including:
- Making Learner Connections
- Making Educator Connections
- Making Community Connections
- Making Global Connections
As we kick off Week 3 of School Library Month, let's take a closer look at Making Community Connections at Your School Library....
with lots of ideas, resources and the Making Community Connections Collection by Destiny this week!
As the AASL School Library Month site states,
Librarians are encouraged to host events and activities that will help their school and local community celebrate the essential role that strong school library programs play in transforming learning.
You will find lots of ideas for elementary, middle and high school activities here from the School Library Month Committee.
Also, think about how the Cultivates Community Partnership wedge of the Future Ready Librarian framework fits into this week of School Library Month.
This is such an important pieces of the framework, especially as it supports partnerships within the school and local community including families, caregivers, non-profit organizations, goverment agencies, public and higher education libraries, businesses, and more.
Cultivating partnerships within the school and local community will bring so much to your school libraries, students and community as a whole. It is essential for the growth and success of all involved.
I have included these posts on my blog today and during the week.
With all of the others on the Future Ready Librarian framework including the webinars with lots of ideas, resources, fun, tips and more, you should bookmark and follow those too.
Please let me know what else we should add or if you'd like to become a collaborator. I'd love to have you help and add your ideas too.
Remember...each week in April, I have been adding a new Collection.
I hope you having a wonderful School Library Month, friends. Thank you for checking our Making Community Connections Collection too.
