Session 3: Jennifer Stone

The library and the library media specialist have never been more important to our information-driven society and in today’s schools. In this workshop we will look at how the library media center has changed and develop a strategic vision and plan to create a vital information center that will be an indispensable resource for both your students and teachers. Some of the topics we will focus on include advocacy, marketing, social media, makerspaces, the virtual library, apps, technology and ebooks in the library. Participants will collaborate with colleagues and have opportunities to select topics for in-depth investigation.

This workshop is geared towards the high school library media specialist but middle school library media specialists as well as public librarians could benefit from this workshop.
