2015 Mahoney Workshop – Public, school and academic libraries and student achievement

Public, academic, and school libraries are all vital to quality services for student achievement in your community. Come join us at the Collaboration and Student Achievement: How School, Public and Academic Libraries Are Working Together workshop to learn more about the range of possible collaborations between libraries, both here in Michigan and across the country. The Library of Michigan and our partners are doing a one day workshop on Nov. 11th in Bay City as the preconference to the Michigan Association for Media in Education (MAME) annual conference. We have a great group of speakers:

  • Allison Barney from the Nashville Public Libraries will be speaking on the Nashville Limitless Libraries program.
  • National award winner Ken Stewart from Blue Valley High School in Kansas will be speaking about libraries transforming communities.
  • Rhonda Huisman from Wichita State University will be speaking on libraries as place and college readiness.
  • Fonda Owens from the La Porte County Public Library (Indiana) will be speaking about public and school library partnerships in Libraries 360 program.
  • Panel sessions and breakouts with school administrators, public librarians, and academic librarians from around the state.

The breakout session tracks are Information Literacy and College Readiness, Public Library Partnership Models, and The Online Teaching Environment: Collections and Collaborations. The partners are the Library of Michigan, MAME, MCLS, MLA, MI-ALA, the Library of Michigan Foundation, and the Cooperative Directors Association (CDA).

We look forward to seeing you there!
