Welcome to the first Collaborative Black-Eyed Susan Program. What started out as a mere conversation of updating a science project binder became a fabulous collaborative project. This program resulted in 300 plus attending patrons, 9 new library cards and sharing a night of reading that promoted the child’s voice with a child’s choice. Sharing the prospects of two sectors with one vision has become a driving force to promote reading and media skills in such a way that it’ll satisfy both of our greatest ventures, successful users of libraries and services and also molding our children to become life-long user’s of reading for fun and information.
