On December 11, 2018 Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar that is part the ongoing professional learning opportunities for school leaders.

In this webinar, panelists discussed how we, as Future Ready Librarians, should leverage an understanding of school and community needs to identify and invest strategically in digital resources such as eBooks, eResources, digital tools and apps, and other digital tools for our libraries and Makerspaces.

Webinar participants will gain knowledge and inspiration from these librarians and their descriptions of  how they have assisted with budgets and resources within their district, throughout the country, and as leaders in the field of librarianship.
