Origins Story

MyLibraryNYC Background - Program is in its 6th yr at NYPL; 5th yr citywide - Tri-Li Partner w/ DOE Office of Library Services - 500+ schools citywide in all 5 boroughs Key Assumptions - School Librarian as Program Lead in schools - Library as a known community partner - Core curricular support for school libraries through library cards and collections

MyLibraryNYC Lessons Learned Key Assumptions

Best Practices

School Librarian as program lead

Each school has multiple STAKEHOLDERS

Library is a known community partner/commodity


Core curricular support through Library Cards & Collections

Most ‘valuable’ OUTREACH differs + No unified curriculum in NYC = ongoing COLLABORATION

Benefits of Collaboration

100,000+ Items for PreK-12

500+ Schools

Happy Teachers!

Title 1 Summer Program Partnership •

VBPL’s youth librarians, in collaboration with the Title I staff, provided interactive literacy and STEAM based programming weekly

The schools’ libraries and computer labs were open to students and their families at least once a week

Students registered and participate online using Evanced Summer Reader software in VBPL’s Summer Reading Challenge

In addition to books provided throughout the year, Title I students received an additional 6-8 books from VB Title I Central Office to keep them reading over the summer break

Summer 2015 was year 3 of the program

Library Smarts • Library lessons to match curriculum • Non-fiction text features and landforms • Databases and plant needs, etc…

More School Services • Teacher bookbags • Teaching collection • Teacher continuing education workshops • Listening kits

Tools and Resources for Collection Development

Collection Support for Early Childhood Providers

Curriculum Mapping for Collection Development • “A curriculum map is a visual picture of the

subjects and skills taught during a school year.” Charlotte Vlasis (from Curriculum Connections Through the Library, Libraries Unlimited)

Why Make a Curriculum Map? • Ideally, your curriculum map should match your library collection. • Public libraries will have a wider reading level range for public use. • A map that doesn’t match the collection identifies collection holes.

What We Own

Analyzing Our Collection • Also looked up each individual landform: mountains, valleys, canyons, plains, islands, peninsulas, caves, etc… • Looked up quick/slow changes to land (mostly in the disaster section, i.e. earthquakes). – Ex: There are not a lot of great books on erosion out there and they are too difficult for 2nd graders to read.

• How many are at 2nd grade level? • Are there any other grades that study landforms?
