Link to Carlisle School Library
Librarian: Maya Bery
One of the benefits of working in a small town is that the public library is right down the path from the school parking lot and it's easy to get involved. This past year, my first in Carlisle, I began collaborating with the teen services librarian, Tahleen Shamlian, on an open-mic night event for middle school students, which was a big hit. I've also worked with both Tahleen and the children's librarian, Marty Seneta on creating summer reading suggestions for 1st-8th grade, and was invited by library director Katie Huffman to serve in a focus group for the library's new long-term plan. Tahleen and Marty also came up to the school to promote their summer reading program. My hope is that the next year will bring even more successful collaborations between the the school and public library, whether that be through programming, resource sharing, or collaboration.
