Millions of schoolchildren can learn only by sharing a single threadbare textbook and millions of people have never been encouraged to read, or to escape into the pages of a book. Yet books give people power. They transform how people see themselves, and see the world around them-Dr. Alice Prochaska Chair, Book Aid International

Around the world, millions of people have never seen or held a new book.
Millions of schoolchildren can learn only by sharing a single threadbare textbook and millions of people have never been encouraged to read, or to escape into the pages of a book.

Partnership is Goal 3 of Book Aid International:
We will develop dynamic partnerships with organizations that Share our vision of creating more equitable access to books
Book Aid International
Everything we do is driven by the partnership. Our partners tell us what books their communities need and we provide books in response to their requests. They then make those books available to readers and run projects and programmes which support reading and learning.
By supporting our partners and enabling them to do more, we can create sustainable change for the people who need books most. So in this strategy period, we will invest in our partners, helping build their skills to deliver programmes which enable people to read.
We will engage more in-country trainers to deliver our projects and programmes and upskill local teachers and librarians through a ‘train the trainer’ model. Those teachers and librarians can then go on to share their skills with others.
We will also grow and diversify our partner network – establishing new partnerships with NGOs within and beyond the education space. In addition, we will work with local publishers, reading agencies, library associations and other groups which exist to promote the value of reading.
This expanded partner network will help us reach a more diverse range of readers with book collections which will inspire children and all people to read. […]

“We need to have active conversations in classrooms and at our kitchen tables regarding current events and how to reliably get information,” DeMarsey said.
Teens in the study were frequently unable to identify fake health messages and also thought that many true messages were untrustworthy.
We refer to teens today as “digital natives” and often turn to them for technical assistance when navigating the apps and platforms that have become essential to our daily functioning. But although today’s teens can’t remember a time before the internet, when it comes to separating fact from fiction in the digital realm, they’re remarkably naive.
A recent study published in the journal Frontiers In Psychology found that a significant number of teens were unable to distinguish between true and fake health-related messages.
This book shows academic and public libraries the many benefits of nurturing a culture of creativity, offering hands-on guidance on encouraging cross-disciplinary collaboration, launching active-learning events that highlight collections and services, fostering goodwill and trust-building, and forming partnerships that promote library visibility.
Today’s library workers have many roles to play: information gatekeepers, connectors, collaborators, and storytellers. The key ingredient is creativity, which acts as the lynchpin of functioning successfully as a team as well as impacting communities in positive ways. This book examines creativity and how it can be applied in library work culture, programming, and outreach. Lotts shows how libraries can encourage staff to approach teaching, learning, and problem-solving in unconventional ways. This invigorating book
demonstrates why the challenges of our current historical moment provide us with a unique opportunity to stop and consider our work and our goals;
dives into several case studies of creative and playful library projects, many of which can be adapted for reuse, investigating how they came to be and the impact they have had on their communities;
discusses getting buy-in from administrators and funding organizations;
offers pointers on collaborating with communities;
guides readers in assessing the impact projects have on communities; and
talks about how to learn and grow from failure and frustration.
