Denise Woetzel, Information Literacy Librarian, and Suzanne Sherry, Parham Campus Library Coordinator, presented the information session “College Libraries and Research: Top 10 Things to Expect” on December 8, 2014 to students at Hermitage High School.

College-bound senior English students participated in the six sessions, and the Reynolds librarians reached almost 400 students during the event. Students were interested in hearing about college libraries and research, especially the cafes in many large libraries. Students also shared their own experiences visiting other colleges.

Hermitage High School is located near Reynolds Parham Road Campus in Henrico County.

Anita Tarbox, one of the librarians at Hermitage High School, hosted the event. “High School students need help preparing and transitioning academically, particularly with the research skills they will need in college. The advice to ALWAYS ASK your professor or librarian will assist our students as they enter the adult world of college.”

Librarians are committed to helping students succeed in high school, college and beyond. Though this collaboration was one small step for librarians, it was one giant leap for student success.
