Description: DigiBridge is a joint effort of Grand Rapids Public Library and the Grand Rapids Public Schools to put technology in the hands of middle and high school students to help them become 21st century learners. The program includes conversion of school IDs to digital library cards to provide quick access to library databases, aggressive efforts to register students for full-access library cards, and training for teachers, students, and parents on using databases for research.

Jessica's Bio: Jessica Anne Liddell is a Youth Services Librarian at Grand Rapids Public Library. She began a partnership (DigiBridge) between Grand Rapids Public Schools and the Grand Rapids Public Libraries, which won the 2014 Urban Library Council’s Top Innovator award.

She has presented nationally on collaborations between schools and libraries, engaging teens in literacy through technology, and the reader’s advisory gap between tweens and young adults. Her other whimsical adventures include playing piano, writing book reviews on Goodreads, and leveling up her magical world called Fairy Kingdom.

About the Innovation Conversations: Innovation Conversations give you the chance to hear from and speak with library leaders from all library types and from all over the English speaking library world. Each month you can interact with an award-winning or recognized leader in our field. 

The first part of the online meeting will feature a short presentation on the topic that brought this library leader to our attention. The second part is a live interview, covering questions you’ve sent to us in advance and some we’ve thought of. The third part will field your questions, a live Q&A, in the webinar. Ask about the challenges, the key details, and whatever else you would like to learn. 

Together, we'll learn more about successful projects and the people behind them than a brief magazine article might include. We're going beyond the blog post, bringing you the chance to ask the questions you want answered to evaluate, adapt, or implement new ideas for your library. Join us for SWON's new Innovation Conversations!
