School library resources applicable to public libraries too

The American Association for School Librarians’ website is a valuable tool for SLMS’s and public librarians because it includes a list of standards and guidelines. Although they are intended for the school library setting, I think they are applicable in a public library, especially when establishing collaborative programming between public and school libraries. The link for Parents includes information literacy materials outlining the importance of families and libraries in preparing children to be lifelong learners. This is also important information for children’s librarians in public libraries, especially given the extensive staff reductions schools are implementing (providing an opportunity for public librarians to fill a void and be advocates for children).
