#TLDay15 (Teacher Librarian Day) Is Tomorrow....Don't Miss It!

Tomorrow is an exciting day in the teacher librarian world.  

Once again we celebrate all that we do with a virtual day together for Teacher Librarian Day, the pre-conference for Library 2.015. This open, online and free event explores teacher librarians and school culture. 

Please join us from 4:00pm-9:00pm EST for a day of wonderful speakers and presentations about a variety of topics.  
You can see the schedule here and below.  The links will take you to the Elluminate Room for each presentation.

I will be presenting with two of my closest friends, Joyce Valenza and Michelle Luhtala.  We are going to discuss What It Means To Build A Reading Culture.  
To end our exciting day together, we will move into TL News Night which features our friends from the South Carolina Association of School Librarians.

We hope everyone will be able to join us tomorrow.  Please use #tlday15 when sharing on Twitter and join in the conversation here too.
