Is your library participating in THE GREAT AMERICAN READ? Whether you have a full slate of programs planned for the series, or you're still wavering on what to offer, a new GREAT AMERICAN READ Programming Guide for Libraries from PBS and the American Library Association (ALA) has ideas and resources that can help.
Public libraries may apply for grants to host public programs around the PBS series “The Great American Read,” an eight-part television and online series designed to spark a national conversation about reading and the books that have inspired, moved, and shaped us, the ALA Public Programs Office announced.
Information literacy skills are a cornerstone to school library instruction. Teacher librarians have taught them for years. Why revisit them now? Before we get into how to use "Arthur" to teach media literacy, we thought it might be nice to give you a little background on why our passion for information literacy programming in school libraries was re-energized and renewed.
