Together with Bill Bass, I hope to explore the links between libraries and innovation at SXSWEdu 2018 in a session titled "Innovation? In a Library? Uh..Yeah!" Feel free to vote on our session and read here why we believe libraries and librarians are logical incubators of innovation.
There has been exciting development in the fight for school libraries over the last month. EveryLibrary and Follett have announced a special partnership with five state school library associations for restoring school libraries to schools and districts and to expanding funding for school library pro
A big thank you to all those that attended ReadingCon with Follett and Northern Illinois University! Our presenters, authors and attendees made it an outstanding event, and we hope all who were there enjoyed connecting with their peers, attending sessions and meeting their favorite writers!
You can share the Future Ready Librarian framework in school wide professional development; back-to-school night with parents; copy it off and slip into teacher mailboxes; and how about hanging it up in the library and other places in the building.
One of the unexpected surprises of Future Ready Librarians initiative has been the amazing virality of #futurereadylibs and the Future Ready Librarians Facebook page. Both librarians and educational leaders have embraced the idea of future-focused school libraries.
