Leadership opportunities across the nation allow school librarians to become the kind of reflective instructional leaders necessary in the modern library.
School librarians provide instructional leadership across the digital learning landscape through collaboration, co-teaching, and professional development. We know that today's librarians are poised to transform teaching and learning in our schools and we need help to spread the word to administration. That's where the Future Ready Schools initiative comes in. How will you provide leadership in your school district? Join us in supporting the Future Ready Librarian project!
