Library Cards for Shandon Students The County of SLO Public Libraries was chosen to participate in the Pacific Library Partnership's 2018 Student Success Initiative, with the goal of getting all students in Shandon Unified School District library cards. Before the Student Success Initiative, 24 children in Shandon had active library cards. Through a partnership with Shandon Unified School District, over 191 kids now have active cards. In the month after students received their cards, 400 children’s books were checked out, the public internet use doubled, and students actively use the library after school.
The Initiative was made possible by County of SLO Public Libraries' Youth Services Coordinator Margaret Kensinger-Klopfer, branch manager Maureen Vestal, regional manager Jackie Kinsey, and support services manager Marci Cunningham, as well as Shandon Unified School District school librarian Jeanne Stuart and District Superintendent Teresa Taylor.
