APL librarians love partnering with teachers to help our community’s students succeed!
If you work at a local middle school or high school, these are just some of the ways the Teen Librarian can help you:
- Present library resources that will help students with homework and research projects
- Present fiction and nonfiction titles that relate to a topic being discussed in class
- Create resource lists for student research projects
- Provide training for staff or students on using APL’s digital resources
- Enroll students in the eCard program, allowing them to use their student ID number to check out APL’s eBooks and other digital materials
- Present popular, age-appropriate fiction and nonfiction titles to get students excited about reading for fun
- Partner with teachers or school media specialists to provide extracurricular learning opportunities for students, such as book clubs or STEM programs
- Partner with guidance counselors to organize and/or host college/career fairs
- And more! If there is something you’d like to try, please don’t hesitate to reach out! Even if the library does not have the staff/resources to help you, we may know another organization in our community that does.
