Short Session Description (one line): 7 Ways Public Libraries Can Impact Student Learning

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

Public libraries often struggle with how to best meet the academic needs of their school-aged patrons and their families. Between budget shortfalls, uncertainty of current academic information, and a wide variety of resources, it can be overwhelming for libraries to know which steps are best.

Marisa Adams has a unique perspective on this issue and has discussed how public libraries can respond to budget shortfalls, create supportive academic environments, and actively become an educational center of excellence for local communities.

In this session, you will discover:

  • The role of Common Core State Standards in education today.
  • The variety of resources available for students.
  • How Digital Natives maneuver through these resources.
  • 7 ways public libraries can influence student learning.

Hi, Marisa!  I'm accepting your proposal, but just have to make sure that you know that you can't promote your commercial business as a part of your presentation.  Cheers, Steve

Absolutely Steve. I read that in the initial guidelines and it will not be a problem at all.


I did have one question though if you have a chance to answer. I know we are alloted one hour, but if the presentation does not take a full hour will that be okay?
