The State Library of Ohio is hosting an event that will focus on ways in which school libraries, public libraries, and communities can work together to build learning communities that foster high levels of student achievement. Rich Harwood from the Harwood Institute and Maureen Sullivan, Library Consultant and current ALA president, will lead this event. This FREE event will be held on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, at the DoubleTree Hotel at 175 Hutchison Avenue in Columbus, Ohio, (near the Route 270 and 23 interchange) from 9:30 AM—3:30 PM and even includes a FREE lunch. Register immediately at NEOToday.org as the program is limited to 100 attendees. You may be interested in knowing the consultants from the Harwood Institute recently worked with community leaders in Newtown, CT to determine what to do with Sandy Hook Elementary School. They have also done extensive work here in Ohio with Youngstown City Schools. Each attendee will receive a copy of the Richard Harwood's most recent book, The Work of Hope.
