Local Librarian Named as a Mover & Shaker

Ann Schoenenberger of the Kenton County Public Library has been named a “Mover & Shaker” in the library industry by the national publication Library Journal.

Through the use of Coursera MOOCs and help from tech mentors, she offered a complete 12 week “Beginning Programming” course that evolved into a project-based learning experiment.

 

She has cultivated a relationship with Kenton County Public Schools. She […]
