Show Us Your Space, Librarians & Add To The Flipgrid Today

I love all of the sharing that takes place in the Future Ready Librarian Facebook Group and within our tribe as librarians and educators.  I am inspired everyday by the wonderful collaboration and connections being made.

Yesterday, my friend Ashley Cooksey shared a link in our group asking everyone to Show Us Your Space by adding to.....
a Flipgrid she created.  The Flipgrid is for teacher librarians to post their school library space and share what makes it special and unique.  It can even be a place to ask for advice from all of us.  

It is easy to share.  Just go to the Show Us Your Space Flipgrid here and record.  Remember you can watch and make comments on others videos too.  

Thank you Ashley for creating this space for sharing our libraries.  I've always wanted to visit everyone's library....now we can with this special space.

LIVE Facebook Event With Matt De La Peña and Loren Long To Share LOVE!

At the American Library Association Conference in January, our friends at Follett hosted a very special Facebook Live event with Matt De La Peña and Loren Long to share their new book LOVE.  

I couldn't wait to watch this and to share it with all of you.  
Also, I started a LOVE Collection by Destiny that you can find here

You will find the video of Matt reading, the LOVE book trailer from Penguin Kids, articles and more.  Please let me know what else we should add or if you'd like to be a collaborator to add things. 
As you bring LOVE to your library and school community, you will find LOVE and many other books by Matt and Loren in this Titlewave List they have brought together for us.  It is filled with so many fantastic titles!  

I added this to the LOVE Collection too.  

I hope their interview fill all of you and your students with inspiration, hope and of course... LOVE.
