We Have An Amazing Lineup Of Presenters and Presentations For The Upcoming Future Ready Librarian Summit On Saturday, March 26th....Join Us, Friends!


This Saturday, March 26, 2022, we are hosting our second Future Ready Librarians Spring Summit. Our theme this spring is Exploring the Intersections Between Library Collections and Community.

On Saturday, we will focus on Proactive Collection Development and have an amazing lineup of speakers, conversations and work planned for this two hour event. 

I am looking forward to hearing Fran Glick's presentation, Collection Development...Awareness, Action, Advocacy and Liz Fambrough and Brandye Roland's presentation, Ditch the Dewey - Restructuring Nonfiction.

As shared online, 

The Future Ready Librarians® summits are FREE, live, virtual, high-quality professional learning experiences for librarians interested in learning, growing, and expanding their professional practice through collaboration and networking with like-minded colleagues from across the country. These interactive online events will help librarians ground their practice in the research-based Future Ready Schools® framework and define new ways they can lead, teach, and support learning in their schools.

Leveraging the active Future Ready Librarians community, the live summits are designed around authentic problems of practice identified by librarians. The first virtual summits of 2022 will help you understand policies and know your collection so that you are ready to respond effectively when patrons or community members have concerns with library books or instructional materials. 

This summit will give you a chance to pose questions and share ideas with other librarians and library leaders. Learn and interact with both administrators and librarians about lessons learned and best practices. Key questions include:

  • How can I identify reconsideration policies and procedures in my school or district?
  • In my role as a librarian, what do I need to understand about materials challenges?
  • How can I work with school and district partners to navigate community concerns over library or instructional materials?

I hope to see you there, friends.
