Academic librarians, are you interested in participating in the PA Forward Star Library program but don’t know how it will work for you? Or, are you working your way through the program and want to learn more about how you can support the literacies and earn your stars? Join librarians from Pennsylvania College of Technology (Penn College) and Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences (PCHS) to learn how they became gold star libraries.  Penn College’s Madigan Library and the Learning Commons at PCHS are the first two academic libraries in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to earn the PA Forward Gold Star status.  They are eager to share their experiences, challenges and opportunities as they achieved the Gold.
