Sept. 15, 2021
2:00 p.m. ET

Hosted by experts from OverDrive, this webinar will walk attendees through Public Library CONNECT — how it works and how schools and public libraries can sign up for free. We’ll provide best practices for a successful sharing partnership that can help kids read more and increase juvenile and young adult circulation, including:

  • Strategies to foster communication between the public library and the school
  • Outreach tips for sharing Public Library CONNECT with your community
  • Curation tips for the public library, so that the students always see juvenile and YA content
  • How to increase availability of in-demand J/YA reads and/or identify gaps in your J/YA collection

This webinar is a must-watch for school and public library staff who work with students, plus managers and directors responsible for the success of their digital collection.
