As the public and teacher librarians walk through their stories of sharing resources through deep collaboration, they will highlight the benefits for each partner. Ways to reach out and begin conversations with counterparts will be covered as well as how to look for shared goals. Places to go for resources which can assist in preparing for and having these conversations will be shared such as ALA’s Public Library & School Library Collaboration Toolkit. Keys to successful collaboration and pitfalls to be avoided will be shared with attendees.
