Join Us For The 1st Annual Future Ready Librarians® Summer Book Club Kick-off...Leading From The Library!


I am very excited to announce the 1st Annual Future Ready Librarians® Summer Book Club on June 2, 2021 at 3:00pm CST.  Here is a little more about this awesome new event...

Join Bill Bass and myself for the kick-off of the Future Ready Librarians® first annual summer book club. This five-week book club is a chance for all of us to reflect, grow, and celebrate our role as Future Ready Librarians.

We will kick off our summer book club with a conversation around our book, Leading from the Library…Help Your School Community Thrive In The Digital Age. The book will spark conversations and learning around leadership, building partnerships, knowing your culture, telling your story and being a champion, and leading through equity.

As shared on the ISTE site about Leading from the Library...

The modern school library supports education in a variety of ways. One essential role librarians play is that of a leader who works collaboratively to build relationships, mold culture and climate, and advocate for the needs of students and the community.

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.

In this webinar, we will share:

  • ideas for how to make an impact within a school community;
  • stories about librarians can build an impactful relationship with school leadership;
  • tips and tricks on how to lead from the library; and
  • inspiration for building an impactful library program that supports student learning.

We will be hosting two Facebook LIVE sessions on July 17th and August 7th (details will follow), where we can share, discuss, and grow together.

Plan to join us for the kick-off webinar.  You can register here, friends.
