  1. Leading from the Library: Help Your School Community Thrive in the Digital Age

    In this book, a librarian and an education leader team up to reflect on the librarian’s ability to build connections in two ways. First, they discuss the benefits of bringing the outside world into the library through the use of social media, videoconferencing and other tools that allow librarians to partner with others. Then they expand upon these connections by addressing how librarians can lead in the greater educational community by sharing resources and strategies, and partnering with school leaders to tell the story of the school community. This book features connections to the Future Ready Librarians framework; planning templates, checklists and resources to guide change; questions for discussion and challenges to put what you’ve read into action; and examples from the field.

  10. Leading a High Reliability School, Revised Edition

    How do educators lead schools that consistently produce excellent results?
