Public Libraries and Schools: What Does a Mutually Beneficial Partnership and Collaboration Mean?

School public libraries are the perfect partnership, sharing many of the same goals. As youth services librarians, we are always trying to collaborate in order to boost awareness of the library, create more programming opportunities, and more. In general, we are aware of what we need in a partnership, but are we communicating it well enough with each other and to our administration? Are we really aware of what teachers and school librarians want and need in a partnership, and how public librarians can best provide support? Join both public and school librarians as we discuss what makes a partnership mutually beneficial.
