New year, new progress for public schools/public library collaboration

Seattle Public Schools campuses don’t resume classes until Monday, but this school librarian was busy this week encouraging students and families to make reading even more of a priority in this brand-new year. He’s Craig Seasholes, librarian at Sanislo Elementary School, and he spent New Year’s Eve afternoon hosting a drop-in event at Delridge Branch Library to continue evangelizing the collaboration between the Seattle Public Library and the public-school libraries at Sanislo and Roxhill. Events ahead include an author visit via Skype and the annual Global Reading Challenge competition; ongoing programs include weekly “Raising a Reader” book bags that go home with kindergarteners every week, plus a boost of 500 SPL books at the Sanislo library, and students helping out before school as part of the Library Club.
