On August 15, 2017, Future Ready Librarians held a webinar on designing collaborative spaces in school libraries.  It addressed the question of how can school librarians support Future Ready Schools® (FRS) by identifying ways librarians can lead, teach, and support personalized student learning in library spaces. The FRL framework is based on research-based components used by FRS.

This webinar examined how librarians can design, support, and champion collaborative and flexible spaces that promote inquiry, creativity, collaboration and community. Carolyn Foote and Andy Plemmons shared how they designed library spaces with flexibility and student learning at the center. They shared stories, examples, and pushed viewers to make changes and embrace library spaces and communities as Future Ready Librarians too.

Librarians, district leaders, and all educators are invited to view this webinar to learn more about the FRL program and how Ms. Foote and Mr. Plemmons designed collaborative spaces and taken their library program to new levels.
