When you need help, ask. When you can't do it alone, get help. Oh yeah, that's right. That is the job of a librarian. We are professional helpers. In the spirit of collaboration, the teen librarian from BPL and I met -- for the first time -- in person. We talked about books, and teens and then hit onto our plan. Collaboration. Not only between her and I but between her library and my staff. It's going to start with a session to get my students a library card. Then a field trip to find resources. Then a research project with one of the Social Studies teachers. Then... who knows? But it's going to work this year!
