Yesterday afternoon I attended an excellent webinar called The Common Core and the Public Librarian: Reaching Patrons and Students. It was sponsored by AASL, and the presenters were Margaux DelGuidice & Kathryn Roots Lewis, school librarian in New York and Oklahoma, respectively. This is the webinar description:

               Discover how public and school librarians can work together to implement the Common Core State Standards in their school community. Participants learn about the
               Common Core State Standards, discover resources to help public librarians understand and use the CCSS, and identify the ways public librarians can support school
               librarians and patrons in navigating these standards.

The link to the archived recording is already available on eCOLLAB, AASL's eLearning platform. It can be found under Complimentary Content, so no login or membership is required.


Speaking of webinars, School Library Journal is offering one called What Public Librarians Need to Know about Common Core State Standards. It is scheduled for Wednesday, May 21st at 11:00 am Pacific. It will be archived later.


A different resource is the Common Core State Standards Action Toolkit for Public Librarians, which was released recently. It was created by the AASL/ALSC/YASLA Interdivisional Taskforce on the Common Core and includes an overview of the CCSS, programming and collection hints, links to brochures for parents, and much more.


Also, I presented a few times about the Common Core for Oregon public library staff. The PowerPoint from my 2014 OLA conference presentation, Explore the Core: Libraries & the ELA Common Core Standards, is meant to serve somewhat like a tutorial, and it is available on Northwest Central.
