Every Student Gets a Card: Leveraging IGAs to Grant Library Access to Illinois Students

This session defines intergovernmental agreements (IGAs) and explains how they can be used to give unserved public school students access to a local public library. Staff from Roselle Public Library District share their experiences with creating and enacting an IGA, and outline concrete steps that other librarians can take to do the same. After viewing this session, library staff will have an understanding of IGAs and how they can be used by public library districts and school districts. They will also learn concrete steps they can take to create and enact their own IGAs.

This webinar is presented by Kristen Lawson and Deanna Siegel, Youth Services librarians at the Roselle Public Library District. It was recorded on August 5, 2020 and is approximately sixty minutes.
