Welcome back!


New blog post: Here's how to make the connections.


As school librarians prepare for back-to-school and return to teaching, how do we achieve our capacity to positively impact our school’s learning culture and students’ reading development?


In this post, I make a case for school librarians as teachers of reading. When we make the connection between information literacy and reading proficiency, we can maximize our contributions to classroom teachers’ and students’ success in the coming year.
