Live from ALA Conference Chicago!
Campaign for American Libraries Coordinator Megan McFarlane was at the ALA Conference Press Booth this afternoon. She reported on the success of "Step Up to the Plate @ Your Library", a seasonal collaboration with the National Baseball Hall of Fame. According to Megan, "most contest entries come from school libraries." This is good to know, given most schools are out for the summer and get information about the program late in the year in the midst of end-of-year tests and such. One school-public library effort resulted in several hundred students entering the contest and answering a series of baseball trivia questions.
