6:00-6:45 PM Joyce Valenza, Michelle Luhtala, & Shannon Miller: “What It Means to Build a Reading Culture”

7:00-7:30 PM  Karen Bonano:”TLs Driving School Culture as Thought Leaders.” Looking at how librarians can identify and tap into their natural talent to make a difference in their school community. If they focus on and nurture their natural talent it does mean they need to identify and connect with a team of talent in the school community to be successful. They may need to think outside the library, physically and virtually. This could show up in projects or programs they may be wanting to develop and implement in their school, e.g. digital citizenship, guided inquiry, edtech integration, makerspace zones, etc.

7:30-8:00 PM  “What’s Next in the TL World?” Closing and Reflection (with news about the upcoming AASL event!)

And, as we close we will spill into the ever popular . . .
