The life-long role of libraries

“This graphic, shows the journey of a student from pre-kindergarten through the K-12 educational system and either into the workforce or on to a higher education institution. Along the way, school, academic, and public libraries are all available to provide services to the student and parents in support of learning and information literacy. This graphic was developed after attendance at various P-20 meetings where it seemed important to show that libraries play an important role throughout the life of students and adults. Minnesota libraries collaborate in sharing services and resources. Once in the workforce, information continues to be available through the public library for lifelong learning and recreation activities.

Though the file on the website is a pdf file, it was made as a Powerpoint and I have both Windows 7 version and version 97-03. As a Powerpoint slide, you may want to customize it to your local situation. Please contact me if you want the Powerpoint slide.

Bill DeJohn, Director of Minitex, does a great job and this graphic deserves wider distribution, so I’m posting it here and remember that imitation is flattery.
