Has remote learning depleted your budget? It doesn’t have to! In this edWebinar, we feature a highly effective consortium model to build digital collections at a fraction of the cost. The model is adaptable and new states are coordinating personnel and resources to replicate it across the country.

Please join Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School in Connecticut, as she interviews Jennifer Keohane, Executive Director of the Connecticut Library Consortium, about how this program is promoting equity and access throughout her state and how it can benefit school libraries elsewhere.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and librarians of grades 6 – 12. Questions will be answered throughout the presentation.
