Planning for Your
Library Learning Commons
“Learners have a right to expect good school libraries in every school in Canada. Our school libraries should reflect our common values of equity, diversity, and cultural identity as well as best approaches in the education and library professions. They should be contextually relevant to student need and success, and built, cared for, measured, renewed and sustained on an ongoing basis by their learning communities. We should position school libraries to lead learning for the future.” (Leading Learning, p. 5)

TMC2016 is on Saturday January 30, in partnership with the OLA Super Conference. The call for papers will be issued by the end of September. We’d love to hear from the RETSD.
