The Common Core and the Public Librarian | On Common Core: Part 5

SPONSORED BY: Lerner Publishing Group, Bound to Stay Bound Books, and School Library Journal
Archive now available!

School librarians across the country have been actively engaged in implementing the Common Core State Standards. More recently public librarians have joined the conversation, asking their colleagues what they need to know about the initiative and how it will affect collection development, homework help, and reference service. Join us for a chat with Olga M. Nesi, a regional coordinator with the New York City Department of Education, Division of Library Services, and Nina Lindsay, Children’s Services Coordinator at the Oakland Public Library, Oakland, CA as they explore the ways in which today’s professionals in public libraries are being called on to serve students in their libraries in light of the Common Core.
