The Digital Human Library has partnered with the Huron County Public Libraries (HCL) in the Avon Maitland District School Board to help promote literacy, and strengthen the relationships between our public libraries and school communities. Twice a year the dHL will be bringing virtual programs developed by Huron County Public Libraries into AMDSB schools to be shared with students in grades K-8.
These virtual programs will take staff, students, parents, and community members on guided tours of their community libraries to learn about the library as a historical building, the variety of resources available for loan (including books, iPads, and video games), as well as the exciting array of programs our public libraries offer their community members every year.
On June 10, 2013 the dHL will be hosting the first Huron County Public Library Virtual Program which will be shared with the staff, students, parents, and community members at Exeter Public School and Stephen Central Public School, AMDSB. Following the event I will blog about the Huron County Public Library Virtual Program as well as post a video and photos highlighting our experiences.
If you are interested in working with schools in your school district, please contact me about the ways in which the Digital Human Library would like to support you! Let’s work together to promote literacy within our schools, and strengthen the relationships between our public libraries and school communities.
