Public Libraries Make a Difference:
5 Key Benefits of Summer Education Programs
Summer vacation threatens to reverse many of the achievement gains that students—and teachers—worked so hard to reach during the previous school year. Low-income students are especially vulnerable to the “summer slide.” According to the Young Adult Library Services Association, low-income students “lose more than two months in math skills and reading achievement, despite the fact that their middle-class peers make slight gains.” Summer education programs can stop the summer slide.

Criterion Collection for Public Libraries
Alexander Street Announces The Criterion Collection for Public Libraries 
The Criterion Collection, an imprint of Janus Films, ranks among the world’s most influential cinematic distributors. Its films - widely respected for both their scholarly and entertainment value - are ubiquitous for the study of cinema, history, and culture at large. But oftentimes these important films, if available, are scattered across multiple formats and locations, making it difficult for users to make full use of their content. This Alexander Street collection delivers 100 of the most popular films available in a streaming format ready for you and your patrons to view with a click of a mouse.
