Libraries Turning Outward Event

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 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.    For more details, please see the SLO website. Hope to see you there.
