Five Bridges Junior High and Tantallon Public Library: A Partnership
    Friday May 25, 2012 9:00am - 10:00am @ Patterson Hall, Room 324

    School and public libraries are both educational institutions by nature.  While their missions may differ, both libraries strive to create life long learners.  In our current economic situation, libraries are usually forced to trim their budgets.  These funding cuts can make collaboration even more important.  In many cases both libraries serve the same children and families. School libraries in Nova Scotia are typically staffed by one or two people.  Resources are limited due to small budgets.  Staff members have a difficult time providing access to current print and online tools.  The financial restraints force staff to find new ways to access these tools and keep students engaged by providing stimulating programming. The Five Bridges Junior High Library and Tantallon Public Library have forged a partnership over the last few years that provides an exciting way to achieve program goals.  The library staff regularly connect to share ideas, resources and programming.  The Five Bridges Junior High Library and Tantallon Public Library have forged a partnership over the last few years that provides an exciting way to achieve program goals.  The library staff regularly connect to share ideas, resources and programming.  The collaboration takes the form of creating joint programs, having the public library staff participate in programs with students, attend open house events to meet the families and providing financial support by covering some of the costs associated with the programs. Please join Erica Smith and Lucas Maxwell to learn how they created this relationship and find out what programming ideas have worked for them.
