What Libraries Do

Get Involved

"New" Future Ready Librarian Framework


"As schools seek to become Future Ready, it is necessary to identify and cultivate leadership beyond district and building leaders. School librarians lead, teach, and support the Future Ready goals of their school and district in a variety of ways through their professional practice, programs and spaces. If properly prepared and supported, school librarians are well-positioned to be at the leading edge of the digital transformation of learning.

Future Ready Librarians™ is an expansion of the Future Ready Schools® initiative aimed at raising awareness among district and school leaders about the valuable role librarians can play in supporting the Future Ready goals of their school and district. Two guiding questions are central to Future Ready Librarians™."


Maximizing School Librarian Leadership

"When school librarians create a strong library program built on a foundation of coteaching inquiry and reading comprehension strategies, they create a program worthy of advocacy. They demonstrate the unique and powerful contributions they make to the learning community--contributions that are worth shouting about. Knowing how to develop such a program is not enough. This book gives school librarians the foundation plus the tools to advocate for their central role in 21st-century learning and teaching"-- --Provided by publisher.  Find it in our Professional Library Catalog
