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.
