Teacher Librarians - we love you! ๐Ÿค—

We believe the Library Learning Commons is the "heart" of the school. The school library today is much more than a place where students go to sign out books, it's a place where students can seek inspiration and unleash their creativity.

We're putting on a special webinar (and accompanying ebook) aimed at sharing strategies to transform your LLC into a place where rich learning happens!

We've partnered with one of our leading Book Creator Ambassadors, Mira Campbell, who is a Teacher Librarian with 14 years experience and has written some of the most compelling case studies on using Book Creator. Read her latest post: How we kept students and parents engaged in remote learning, and make sure to watch the videos at the end!
