Future Ready Librarians® Hub

Since 2016, Future Ready Librarians® has been focused on supporting equitable and accessible student learning through powerful librarianship. As educators, Future Ready Librarians® lead, teach, and support learners both young and old. Embracing change and innovation, Future Ready Librarians teach and promote diverse literacies, integrating engaging digital tools, and collaborating with leaders and colleagues to implement equitable and inclusive learning environments in their libraries and beyond. The Future Ready Librarians® Framework guides and inspires the professional practice of librarians, directly linking the library program to the strategic needs and priorities of schools and districts. Future Ready Librarians challenges librarians, educators, and the community to see school libraries informed by the past, grounded in the needs of the present, and planning for a dynamic future.


Based on the same research-based framework that guides instructional coaches, principals, IT leaders, school administrators, and school board directors, the Future Ready Librarians Framework helps define ways librarians can lead, teach, and support in their schools and systems. 


Future Ready Librarians®’ professional learning events and webinars are focused on innovative projects, leaders, and ideas. Join us for these deep-dive conversations featuring teacher librarians, educators, and leaders sharing and discussing together.
