"Librarying" outside the Library
Calzada, Becky
Knowledge Quest, v47 n4 p36-43 Mar-Apr 2019
How can relationship building and demonstrating impact on learning be done? As professionals, school librarians must seek out opportunities to lead or work with others in the area of programming. Much can be done in the library space but when the programs occur outside the school library, a librarian's willingness to be adaptable is leveraged and the result can be a huge win for students and staff. Mobility and flexibility are key and offer school librarians the opportunity to leverage their expertise and role while introducing the concept of "librarying" outside the walls of the library space. Seeking creative ways to make an impact on learners and our communities is imperative. This article discusses programs in Leander Independent School District (ISD) that provide students and adult learners rich, engaging learner experiences, as well as showcase how school librarians can be critical allies in lesson design or professional learning. These programs also have the unintended outcome of creating a culture of "yes" when school librarians ask to collaborate with other educators in the schools.
