Event Description

Meet Me at the Library: The History of the School Librarianship Program at Illinois State University
Thursday, April 8

1 to 2 p.m. via Zoom: https://illinoisstate.zoom.us/j/96282496510
Join University archivist April Anderson-Zorn as she explores the history of the school librarianship program at Illinois State University. Attendees will learn how Redbirds became school librarians, how the program changed from a degree to a certificate, and where some of our Redbird library alums are now. Photographs of campus locations and documents from the era will highlight the training of Redbird school librarians and the critical role they play in the classroom. Talk consists of a 45 minute presentation followed by 15 minutes for questions and answers.

This is a free event open to ISU students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni, and friends. If you need an accommodation to fully participate in the event, please contact Milner Library Director of Communication and Outreach Erin Link at ellink@ilstu.edu.
