Example text

A less convenient method, for school librarians working with teachers who continually forget to forward an assignment, is to photocopy a student’s assignment sheet and fax or scan it to the public library. Collaboration requires the building of a relationship based on mutual respect; and it necessitates an effort to share responsibilities (Katz 2009, 29). It requires true teamwork and a sense that the partnership will last long term beyond the length of a single program. The process of relationship building is interactive; it is more intense, more organized, more demanding, and more powerful than simple cooperation (Georges 2004, 35).

Meeting in one of the libraries may be more comfortable for both of you. While touring the library you will be able to view the layout, the resources provided for teens, and, most likely, some flyers for programs or special activities planned. After you get to know each other when it is time to start actual planning meetings consider moving your meeting outside of your libraries to minimize interruptions. If you will share with us your kids, we’ll share with you our resources. —Nancy Levin, Director Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library, Ohio.

Besides sharing speaker’s fees, working as a team allows librarians to creatively solve a host of money issues. The public library usually has a marketing director who can provide valuable advice to school librarians about graphic design and newsletters. The school librarian, in return, can have the school print shop reproduce flyers and bookmarks for teen programs. Instructors, students, or staff can be tapped to assist with programming topics that relate to their cherished hobbies, for example, photography (refer to Chapter 6 for more specific information on working together to secure authors for your programs).
