After a summer & early fall hiatus, Service-Learning Librarian is back with a guest post from Dr. Julianne Gassman: Director, Office of Community Engagement and Professor, Recreation, Tourism & Nonprofit Leadership at University of Northern Iowa. We hope you appreciate Julianne's take on how to ensure our institutions center the community part of community engagement, with support from service-learning librarians.
This post is co-authored by Beth Hohenfeld, Service Learning Literacy educator, and Lorri Kingan, Library Media Specialist, from Hudson Middle School in Hudson, Ohio.
“Service Learning has taught me so much. I love coming to this class every day, knowing that I can, will, and did make a difference in the world. It could be very challenging sometimes, but it is truly worth every second of hard work. I feel like service learning needs to be a class that every Middle Schooler takes from all around the world. Together, we can make a difference!” - 8th grade student reflection
