Edge Library
Community Outreach Programs

The Community Outreach Programs of the Robert J. Kleberg Public Library offer local organizations the opportunity to have a library resource presentation that is designed to give insight into today's library environment and social librarian. 

Each Community Outreach Program is conducted by a knowledgeable library staff member and is done as a resource presentation that lasts approximately 25 – 45 minutes. The presentation, shown in PowerPoint format, is informative in nature and engages the audience by providing an overview of the library's services, all while giving insight into how these services impact the individuals and families that utilize them. Brochures and flyers regarding our library services are also provided as take-away materials for attendees to review at their convenience.

 Topics that are covered and discussed during the presentation include:

  • The Social Librarian
  • Introduction to TexShare (Academic/Public Databse)
  • Introduction to Mango Languages (Language Learning Suite)
  • Introduction to LearningExpress Library 3.0 (Online Practice Exams)
  • Introduction to OverDrive (eBooks, Audiobooks & Videos)
  • Overview of Library's Digital & Technology Services
  • The Maker's ZONE (STEM/STEAM/STREAM)**
  • How to Apply for a Library Card

**STREAM: A unique approach to teaching that uses science, technology, robotics, engineering, arts, and math to connect the dots for authentic, deep learning.


These presentations are normally held at the organization's meeting room or at another designated meeting location. Listed below are some of the area organizations and that we have had the opportunity to visit. They include:

  • The Women's Club of Kingsville
