MyLibraryNYC is a partnership between the Department of Education’s Office of Library Services and the New York City’s Public Library Systems—Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library and Queens Library—to raise student achievement through digital access to and school-site delivery of the millions of books and informational resources to available in the libraries’ collections.
Highlights of the program include:
• Teacher and Librarian use of an increased number and variety of text, multimedia and primary sources to plan Common Core aligned units and lessons;
• Free delivery and pickup of materials (book sets and individual resources) for teachers to support instruction;
• Educator and Student library cards with enhanced borrowing privileges;
• Professional development and support for the school librarian to provide enhanced library services for everyone at the school;
• Opportunities for schools to build a collaborative partnership with the local library branch to provide programming services around reading and literacy;
• 24/7 virtual learning opportunities for educators and students to connect and collaborate through shared reading and resource lists, reviewing and rating books, and the opportunity to “follow” the selection choices of peers, teachers, and experts.
