Librarians PLC

Home E Events E Librarians PLC
15 PDPs
Grade PK-5;6-8;9-12
ELA;English Language Learners

This professional learning community is for anyone acting in the librarian/media specialist role in a school in Massachusetts. Librarians are often the only person in their role in the building and in some districts, they might be the only person in the entire district. This learning community provides a space where you can find support from other librarians and develop your own ideas for engaging in promising practices in the field. 

This PLC is very participant-driven and specific topics addressed in the group are guided by the needs and interests of participants, with facilitation provided by Suzanne Judson-Whitehouse. Topics discussed may include:

Challenges faced by librarians

Examining problems of practice as a group and strategizing potential solutions

Diverse books in the library

Addressing the needs of students of the global majority in the library

Meeting the needs of LGBTQ+ students in the library

Designing a physical space to support student engagement in the library

Advocacy for library funding and programs

Collaboration with classroom teachers

Resources available to Massachusetts libraries
