The Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library has established a partnership with Indian Hills Elementary School with an aim to support the school in several ways.
“Our library is invested in the education of our community, but often the information may not be reaching the individuals that can benefit from the resources,” Executive Director DeeAnna Sova said in a news release. “We felt that by choosing one school to provide one-on-one training and support through technology, information and hands-on experiences, we can provide information to our community and build a foundation of the many ways that the library is a valuable resource.”
The partnership will provide:
- Outreach programs brought to the school by HCCPL
- Programs created specifically for all grades at Indian Hills Elementary at HCCPL
- Book clubs
- STEAM activities
- Family activities at HCCPL
- Personalized book bundle kits
- Interactive programs using resources the library has such as text translation, 3D printer and other makers activities
“HCCPL would like to see this one-on-one partnership eventually implemented at all schools in Christian County. HCCPL offers longer hours of operation and more days a week than the public schools, which provides more opportunities for students, parents and educators to utilize the library resources,” the release states.
Indian Hills Principal Sarah Sweeney Johnson added, “This partnership will allow us to promote a love for reading and an exposure to the library to help build on our students’ literacy foundation.”
