Library Hacks for Teens: A College/Public/School Libraries Collaboration
Thursday, May 7
10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
How can public, school and college libraries work together to “bridge” students from K-12 to college level research? That’s what Harford Community College, Harford County Public Schools and Harford County Public Library (Maryland) wanted to figure out. The result was a unique and fun partnership to create an online scavenger hunt contest for teens called “Harford Library Hacks,” held during National Library Week. This collaboration was also an opportunity for librarians from the three systems to learn from each other. We’ll share how we led this program and what we learned, and we’ll develop ideas for new collaborations.
This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.
