Summary

Who needs libraries and librarians when you have the Internet? While many district leaders have responded to this question by cutting library programs, other superintendents & educational leaders believe in Future Ready Librarians who are strategically connected to classroom innovation. With support and partnership from the Alliance for Excellent Education, the U.S. Department of Education and Digital Promise, librarians are working with district leaders to effectively lead, teach and support information literacy, content curation and digital citizenship. This panel of educators will explain why access to digital tools and resources actually increases the need for future ready librarians.
