Program Description

The decline in support for school libraries is not unique to Arizona, or to Yavapai County. In an effort to solve this problem, the Yavapai County Free Library District created a program to support school libraries throughout Yavapai County.  This session will give the details of how this program was established and how it continues to generate great success.
