Librarians Peer Network

Growing a Future Ready Library


  • How do we create a library space and culture that prepares our students to be citizens of an increasingly diverse world.
  • As librarians, how do we encourage students to become more engaged in their own learning so that they can grow to be problem solvers, change makers, accomplices, and advocates?
