Book Study: Core Values in School Librarianship

Core Values in School Librarianship Conversations

Banner by Suzanne Sannwald

During the fall of 2021, contributors to Core Values in School Librarianship: Responding with Commitment and Courage (Libraries Unlimited 2021) and I will be blogging each week about the chapters in the book.

We will begin on August 19, 2021, with an introduction and invitation to join our book study. We will focus on each chapter in the book for two weekly posts published each Monday. The book study will conclude at the end of December, 2021.

We hope you will use these posts as additional resources for your learning.
