Pitching the Library: How to Explain What School Librarians Do


EmergingTechWhen administrators are faced with challenging budget cuts, they often cut from library programs – often because they don’t understand how strong library programs serve the learning community. This edWeb.net Emerging Tech webinar equipped participants with talking points to promote library programs, reframed librarians’ work with new language, and dispelled myths about librarianship.  Watch the webinar recording to learn about pitching the library from Michelle Luhtala, Head Librarian at New Canaan High School in CT.

Emerging Tech is a professional learning community (PLC) where school librarians can explore all the ways to integrate technology and 21st century learning into school library programs. The community hosts free monthly webinars and live chats. Online discussions provide an easy way to continue the conversation and share ideas and experiences with peers across the country, and around the world. You’ll have an opportunity to collaborate with other librarians as you learn about and explore the many uses of technology in school libraries.  This program is sponsored by Follett.
