Community Share is a program designed to create a resource bridge from the public library into K-12 schools, greatly expanding student access to age- and grade appropriate digital content. Students discover and borrow public library materials from their school’s online catalog using just their student ID. A single search returns all content provided by their school and the content shared from the local library in just one click. Community Share leads to an uptick in community readership, easy integration of classroom materials, and increased public library collections for children and teens.
