As schools seek to become Future Ready, it is necessary to identify and cultivate leadership beyond district and building leaders. School librarians lead, teach, and support the Future Ready goals of their school and district in a variety of ways through their professional practice, programs and spaces. If properly prepared and supported, school librarians are well-positioned to be at the leading edge of the digital transformation of learning.
Future Ready Librarians™ is an expansion of the Future Ready Schools® initiative aimed at raising awareness among district and school leaders about the valuable role librarians can play in supporting the Future Ready goals of their school and district. Two guiding questions are central to Future Ready Librarians™.
Future Ready Librarians™ will provide resources, strategies, and connections for district leaders and librarians to be able to work together to promote and implement innovative learning opportunities for students.
