Returning to school this fall is guaranteed to look very different and in many districts and schools, the plans are yet to be determined. Future Ready Librarians are leading beyond the library and collaborating working with schools and district leaders to support school and district’s vision and strategic plan for digital learning and fosters a culture of collaboration and innovation to empower teachers and learners. Future Ready Librarians are creating plans that support learning on campus and online. These plans are grounded in the Future Ready Librarians framework and support personalized student centered learning.
