OLA 2011 We All Care: Library Linx
Library Linx is a partnership between three school districts and the public library district of Deschutes County. It allows for students and teachers at member schools to place holds on public library materials and have them delivered directly to the schools via courier. The student or teacher then checks out the items at the school library, returns them to the school library, and they are then delivered by courier back to the public library. The attached documents include the application a school fills out to become a member of Library Linx; the required responsibilities of the school and library; the measurements that are considered, and the letter to the parent explaining Library Linx and encouraging him/her to obtain a Library Linx library card for his/her student, as well as an article that was in OLA Quarterly, co-written by Heather McNeil, Deschutes Public Library, and Linda Bilyeu, Bend La Pine Schools..
