School Library Blogs

school-library-blogsOne look at the titles of blogs narrated by school librarians reveals the evolution of a profession that is at a pivotal point. Charged with the vital duty of promoting digital literacy, today’s librarians are daring, unique, sassy, and e-literate. We commend these school librarians for taking the time to share their ideas, experiences, and advice with the school library community. If you would like to recommend a school library blog to add to this list, please contact us to help improve this resource.
