Peanut Butter & Jelly

Hello ,

That timeless staple is back on the menu and in countless lunchboxes as a new school year begins. Your Library is proud to deepen partnerships with parents, caregivers and educators – because like peanut butter and jelly, we belong together. We’re holding our breath with you and hoping for health and stability this school year, and we have programs and resources ready to support students in both virtual and in-person classrooms.

All CMS schools, as well as participating charter and private schools, are part of the ONE Access initiative, which integrates a Library account with a student ID number for over 150,000 students. A point of contact at each school is paired with a Library staff member who reaches out monthly to share resources and stay informed of changing needs at individual schools. These personal relationships make the partnership more impactful for students, families, schools and your Library.

Thank you, as always, for your investment in our community.


Jenni Gaisbauer, CFRE
Executive Director
