Wonderful, thoughtful blog post here from Tania Sheko on her Brave New World blog about time spent at a PD session recently where relevancy and trends in public libraries were discussed by such luminaries as David Lee King.
There is much we can take from this for school libraries which is being actively pursued by our colleagues in Public Libraries. It is about taking brave steps I think. Trying new things and seeing what is possible if you break down the barriers of your own perceptions and get outside your comfort zone.
Read the entire article but this is the slideshare from Hamish Curry from the State Library of Victoria. Check out sideshare below and put it with the twitter stream from the blogpost and you will get the gist. I love slides 18 to 23. Especially slide 22! It sings to me!
Here is the link to the presentations David Lee King did in Australia
If you were looking for an awesome school library advocate to follow on Twitter then I heartily recommend Tania Sheko. She is all kinds of awesome she is @taniatorikova
