Powerful Collaborations: Library-School-Community Partnerships

This featured session at the Families Learning Summit showcased how libraries, schools and community-based organizations work together all year to help families learn together and engage with their communities. You will learn how public library leaders, school leaders and partners in three communities are providing opportunities for families to learn and serve together throughout the year via Family Service Learning and digital- and Maker- influenced blended learning approaches. Hear about the ways in which public libraries are providing engagement opportunities for all families - including disadvantaged parents and children - with a two-generation, family-focused approach.

Brought to the Summit by the Urban Libraries Council and NCFL, this session is sponsored by Better World Books and builds on concepts highlighted in the recently published Leadership Brief: Libraries Supporting Family Learning.
