Program: School Library System

Dates: 5/14/2021

Starting Soon
The North Country School Library System Association is hosting an online, Google Classroom book study on Leading from the Library by Shannon McClintock Miller and William Bass. In this book, a librarian and an education leader team up to reflect on the librarian's ability to build connections in two ways. First, they discuss the benefits of bringing the outside world into the library through the use of social media, videoconferencing and other tools that allow librarians to partner with others. Then they expand upon these connections by addressing how librarians can lead in the greater educational community by sharing resources and strategies, and partnering with school leaders to tell the story of the school community. Each week's work will be worth 1 hour of PD credit. In order to earn the full amount of credit hours, participants must:

• Respond to every discussion prompt.

• Reply respectfully to at least two other participant's responses for each discussion prompt.

• The book study will begin the week of April 12 and conclude on May 14.
