Volunteers build experiences, resumes and library’s future

MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS TURNED EMPLOYEES 


These three volunteers are living examples that building your experience and network can help with employment because they were hired for full time Library System positions in the last 30 days.


Emmett Brantley, III had completed a degree in film and video and wanted to learn more about the library’s resources. Brantley said, “I helped many patrons find books within Dogwood’s catalog and completed various computer tasks like printing and editing documents, sending emails, and even creating job portal accounts on which to upload resumes and create profiles. I have also improved my social skills as I am more vocal as it pertains to communicating with other people, which is something that I could not say prior to volunteering.”


Kevin Brown was a librarian at Atlanta Metropolitan State College who wanted to learn more about public libraries. “Since I had academic library experience but no public library experience it seemed like the perfect opportunity to serve in a familiar way while learning more about the public side. I learned how much the community uses the library for meetings and how popular the hold requests are for books. I am looking forward to serving the community through programs and events for children and teens in and around the downtown area. Thanks to the Volunteer department for working to place me. My positive experience at the East Atlanta branch made me want to join AFPLS,” said Brown.



Shirley Favors was a part time employee who was laid off during the 2014 budget cuts, but still wanted to help support staff at the Central Library. 


They completed volunteer applications and orientations, then were motivated to get involved in their community and give back to their local library a total of 4,000 hours in 2 years. 

Go visit these amazing volunteers and staff members at Central, Dogwood and East Roswell to learn more.

eCampus Library Administrator Serves as Principal for A Day with Fulton County School System by Juree' Hall

In celebration of National Education Week, nearly 100 schools across Fulton County open its doors to community leaders for the Principal for A Day Program (PAD).  PAD is held annually during American Education Week November 14-18.  As a member of the Library’s Collection Development & Technical Services Department the program provides a perfect project for me with our learning resources.  This year I had the joy of serving as Principal for A Day at C. H. Gullatt Elementary School with its school leader, Mr. Felipe Jackson.


Fulton’s PAD program aims to build relationships between schools and business/community leaders while also educating them on the rigors of successfully managing a school.  During the weeklong event, business and community leaders will tackle many of the regular duties that leaders face every day.  This is my 7th year participating as a Principal for A Day.  Each year I learn more and more about the needs of schools and the importance of community partners to support schools.    My primary goal in serving is not only to learn more of the challenges of the Principal and their duties, but to also answer one important question in my heart “What more can I do as an Administrator in the library to support this school and our younger patrons.”
My PAD experience is usually the start of a new relationship.  New faces, new challenges and new opportunities to implement the libraries mission and goals in areas of Fulton County that need them.  And with each PAD experience I always leave with an AFPLS strategic plan to: implement mechanisms for library card sign up for the entire school; implement and raise goals for online reading through eCampus and electronic databases; and create better awareness of library programming and resources for the entire family, including providing GED and job resources if needed. 
Principal Jackson has his work cut out for him.  The Gullatt School Community has a total of 503 students with 98% of the school community eligible for free or reduced lunch.  As a Title 1 School (a school where Federal assistance is given due to high percentages of children from low-income families) the importance and crucial role that strong and sustained library support plays stands out.


“It is important for every business leader in the community to listen to their local school community’s needs.  It is important to me to hear and assess the efforts of leadership, their challenges and their wishes. Their wishes represent to me their hopes and goals for a direction they want to go in.  Principal Jackson shared with me his progress in providing technology devices for learning for his students. He spoke passionately about adding even more learning pads to engage his little learners. In understanding his goals, I can go back to my office at the library and then customize eCampus learning plans that the library can share with his school for tutoring, skill building and test prep. I can also reach out to my colleagues to share even more library programs that the school community may not be aware like the Millner Awards, the Coretta Scott King Book Awards and even local programs at the newly renovated South Fulton Library branch and links to supportive initiatives through the Library’s Friends groups and the Library Foundation.” 




Libraries can partner in communities in so many ways and technology initiatives broaden exponentially the abilities for service and support for shared goals.  The eCampus learning suite is a perfect way for students in our local system to “take their dreams off the shelf”.  Through the use of technology and the eCampus Project, the library continues to serve students outside of the traditional model of assistance found in standing locations. “The PAD Program offers opportunities for true leaders to acknowledge progress and partner to tackle challenges. It’s my favorite program in Fulton Schools. Give me, the Leader, the opportunity to serve and I’ll give them a new world of support through library and eCampus services.”

Banned Books Week 2016: Sept. 25 - Oct. 1

(courtesy of the American Library Association, Office of Intellectual Freedom)

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship. The ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) compiles lists of challenged books as reported in the media and submitted by librarians and teachers across the country.

Find out which challenged books made the 2015 list, which was released as part of the 2016 State of America’s Library Report.



A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials. Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others. As such, they are a threat to freedom of speech and choice.

The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. While books have been and continue to be banned, part of the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, the books have remained available. This happens only thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, students, and community members who stand up and speak out for the freedom to read.

OIF also offers support for librarians facing challenges to materials in their library. The support librarians seek will not be disclosed to any outside parties, and the challenge report OIF receives is kept confidential. Please see Challenges to Library Materials for resources and information to help you prepare for and respond to challenges.

If you would like more information about banned and challenged books, contact the Office for Intellectual Freedom at (800) 545-2433, ext. 4220, or oif@ala.org. For more information on how to get involved with Banned Books Week, email bbw@ala.org.

For media inquiries related to Banned Books Week, please contact: Heather Cho, Media Relations Specialist, 312-280-4020, hcho@ala.org; and Macey Morales, Deputy Director of ALA's Public Awareness Office, 312-280-4393, mmorales@ala.org.
