COS WAC and PPLD Form Community Partnership
The WAC and the PPLD formed a more formal working arrangement whereby the individual and collective missions of each organization will be enhanced through the association.
The purpose of the arrangement is to find additional ways to use our mind altering programming and the library’s technology and outlets in order to impact our community.
One outcrop of this collaboration is to conduct Teen Breakfasts at the PPLD’s Teen Media Center beginning this fall. WAC selected speakers will give a talk at the center followed by a Q & A before a live audience of some 30 teens and the program will also be web cast simultaneously to other local area high schools.
Additionally, the organizations plan on promoting each other through a variety of means in order to increase public awareness of the various programs each is involved with.
This community partnership is one of the initial cogs in the WAC wheel of looking to develop a systematic approach to achieving its three main objectives. These are new membership, corporate sponsorship, and enhanced technology and infrastructure.
