In this presentation, you’ll learn how Columbus Metropolitan Library partnered with nonprofit Learning Circle Education Services to measure the impact of library services. Through data sharing, the library was given insight into whether programs such as Summer Reading Club, Homework Help and Reading Buddies were helping students read on grade level and increasing their performance in school. Listen as the project team shares what has been learned so far about students using these library services and discusses the importance of connecting the work of out-of-schooltime providers with K–12 student data to measure the impact on student achievement.

Join us for this free webinar to learn how you can demystify technology to empower others around you, no matter your technical ability or where you work. We will share our approaches to I.T. training to engage different learning styles, free and adaptable resources, and lessons learned from hands-on experience in the field.
