How Public Libraries Are Graduating Adults: Caps, Gowns & Bright Futures

Event Date & Time: Thursday, January 18th, 2018, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

As one of our nation’s most trusted educational institutions, public libraries already support adult literacy, GED preparation, and workforce development. But what if your library could actually produce high school graduates? It can – with Career Online High School from Gale.

It’s already happening at more than 100 public library systems across the country – adults are being engaged back into the educational system and earning their high school diplomas plus a career certificate in one of eight, high-growth, high-demand fields. Adults are graduating. And…lives are being changed.

Our panelists will share why they chose the program, what it has meant in terms of alignment with mission, demonstrating outcomes, community partnerships, etc. They will also give insight into the day-to-day program operations, share best practices and you’ll even hear a story or two of how this program has impacted the lives of their students and graduates.

Panelists

  • Kristen Sorth – Director, St. Louis County Library
  • Katie Devanny – Center for Adult Literacy Manager, Jacksonville Public Library
  • Carla Adkins – Learning Coordinator, Librarian IV, County of Los Angeles Public Library
  • Tony Ludovici – Library Program Instructor, Pima County Public Library

Moderator

  • Rebecca Jozwiak – Library Journal
