Limitless Libraries launched earlier this year as a partnership to make the full resources of the Nashville Public Library available to students in three of Nashville’s public high schools. Dean included funds in the 2010-2011 operating budget to expand the program to all high schools. The weeding of materials at MLK High is the first step before new materials are purchased to update the schools’ collection. Through Limitless Libraries, students can also access the Public Library’s collection of 1.5 million items through delivery to their school library, including books, audio books, DVDs, CDs. The Nashville Public Library now sends an average of 44 items to MNPS through delivery every day, and over 9,000 public high school students now have library cards.
