A digital transformation requires bold leadership to teach students digital literacy, modern research techniques, and cutting-edge skills that apply across all subjects, curriculum, and physical boundaries. Today's students need strong leaders who understand the importance of transforming libraries into vibrant hubs of active digital learning. Strong, future ready libraries and the expertise of dynamic librarians can make the difference in a district's future success.
Project Connect is a panel of industry thought leaders from the preK-12, professional association, and higher education space working together to advocate for powerful school libraries and future ready librarians. What is a future ready librarian?
