The Rutgers University School Library Bus Tour
In partnership with Joyce Valenza, Professor of Library and Information Science at Rutgers University, the South Brunswick Library Media Specialists will welcome library students and recent graduates for the School Library Bus Tour during the week of October 23. Piloted in South Brunswick in 2016, this event encourages Rutgers students to observe the daily operations of a high-functioning library. The success of last year's event in South Brunswick has lead Joyce to expand the bus tour across the state spotlighting other notable library programs and allowing even more students to participate.

Rutgers University's Library Program is currently ranked sixth in the nation and this partnership speaks to the high quality of South Brunswick's school libraries. The tour will take place on Tuesday, October 24, Wednesday, October 25, and Thursday, October 26, during which time RU students will schedule visits to the LMCs at Brunswick Acres, Indian Fields, XRDS South, XRDS North, and/or the High School. At each site the students will observe a typical day in a busy school library and have an opportunity to chat with the librarian about the specifics of her program.

Our SBSD school libraries are true "learning commons." With this bus tour, our LMS are giving future librarians insights into what excellent library-media programming looks like, and helping them to further succeed.
