On School Library Day, it is important to remember that the School Library is not just a place. More importantly, it is the people who are a part of the School Library who give it life. Everyone who works in the school library, in the physical space, or online, contributes to the vital role of the school library in education.
Thanks to Mia MacMeekin for this wonderful infographic on the role of the Teacher Librarian (left). Every school needs a Teacher Librarian working with the students, staff, administration, parents and other stakeholders in the success of a school library program. Without a Teacher Librarian, a school library is just another room after all.

Are you on Twitter yet? It isn’t just celebrities telling us what they had for lunch, or friends telling us about their bodily functions. The educational possibilities for Twitter are tremendous. Just today we retweeted items related to language, games, photography, Vancouver history, iPads, teaching, Drop Everything and Read, The Hobbit, Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement, comics, libraries, flags, school libraries, public libraries, authors, literacy, our writing contest, and more. We share about what we are doing in the school library learning commons, we share about what is happening in the school, we share about the things our kids are learning in classes, and we share about all sorts of things.
