Library Links to Schools

WSJ – “A pilot program between the world’s largest circulating library and the nation’s biggest public school system is allowing New York City teachers to borrow books online and have them delivered directly to classrooms for the first time. The school system’s partnership with the New York Public Library—set to be announced Monday—lets teachers at more than 50 schools borrow up to 100 books at a time, including sets for an entire class, officials told The Wall Street Journal. The schools’ students also will get library cards. “What this offers students is access to a world of resources well beyond what their school library can stock,” said Gregg Betheil, the Department of Education’s executive director for school programs and partnerships.”
