The Teaching Resources Center (TRC) at UNC Greensboro (UNCG) created a Mobile Engagement Program in 2018 to serve the literacy and curricular needs of a public high school and a child care center located on the campus.
This program was funded by the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant from the State Library of North Carolina.
This program supports the TRC in its role as a model school library, providing students from both the high school and the child care program materials to suit their needs within the TRC collections. The challenge for both groups is that they are limited in terms of mobility and time to access library resources on site. The TRC purchased a Book Bike to start delivering books to the high school at lunchtime to increase students’ access to library materials. Based on the success of the Book Bike initiative, the TRC staff sought funding to create kits that specifically addressed the literacy and curricular needs of the two distinct user groups. Each kit had a theme with materials that include books, teaching manipulatives, and technologies. The kits are brought to each school via the Book Bike along with supplemental materials from the TRC collection. Students and teachers check out the materials for use at their location and may return the materials at the next Book Bike visit.
This poster will report on notes from creating the Mobile Engagement Program and other novel findings of the project.
