Join Us For The Upcoming Future Ready Librarian, The Mindful Librarian, On February 2, 2022! Sign Up Today, Friends.


I am so excited to kick off a new year of our Future Ready Librarian® webinars. Over the last 5 years, we have hosted lots of webinars with amazing teacher librarians discussing important, exciting and special topics and experiences that are helpful and meaningful to all of us.  You will find the archives here.

And this year, we have another lineup that you sure won't want to miss, friends. 

The first webinar is coming up on February 2, 2022 at 4:00pm EST. It is called The Mindful Librarian. 

As shared online, 

The relationships we build with our students and staff provide a foundation for all we do. We work to create safe spaces in which our entire school community can not only access our print and digital resources but engage in opportunities for social and emotional regulation and growth.  During this webinar, we will discuss what the Parkway School District (MO) is doing in their library program to explore what it means to be a mindful librarian and we will give specific examples from both elementary and secondary settings. You will come away from this webinar with innovative ideas that can be implemented in your library right away!

We will discuss:

  • What it means to be a mindful librarian (taking care of self, taking care of others, taking care of the world around us)?
  • How students and staff can focus on mindfulness with the elementary and secondary libraries and schools?
  • What programs are used to support SEL across grade levels and curriculum?
