On June 2, 2021, Shannon McClintock Miller and Bill Bass kicked off of the Future Ready Librarians® first annual summer book club. This five-week book club is a chance for all of us to reflect, grow, and celebrate our role as Future Ready Librarians.

We kicked off our summer book club with a conversation around Shannon and Bill’s book, Leading from the Library…Help Your School Community Thrive In The Digital Age. The book will spark conversations and learning around leadership, building partnerships, knowing your culture, telling your story and being a champion, and leading through equity.

About Leading from the Library. Help Your School Community Thrive In The Digital Age.
The modern school library supports education in a variety of ways. One essential role librarians play is that of a leader who works collaboratively to build relationships, mold culture and climate, and advocate for the needs of students and the community.

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.
