For our library the collaboration was/is the hardest. As I mentioned during one of the phone calls, my science partners where happy to help talk about the informal science, but they were not excited about reading the books and leading a “book discussion.” So, I do that part of our programs. For me, it would almost be easier not to have the “science partner” as I can lead that part as well. The partners have done their part, but don’t seem interested in establishing anything long term. Now, I am in no way saying that they were “bad partners” they weren’t, they were excellent, but, I don’t think they got the whole idea. The patrons who attend are very knowledgeable and we do have great discussions.
