Open for the Future: School Librarians as Planners and Preppers

School librarians can begin planning now for a changed role within the new normal of schools. How will physical spaces and collections need to be modified to deal with ongoing viral threats? What are reasonable preparations to make in the face of the need to return to a quarantine situation in the future? And where should we see ourselves in this emerging situation? Let’s look at reasonable scenarios and plan together for the success of school librarians in any future. 


Topics:

  • Ok, Doomer - preparing for possible futures without going crazy or being seen as such
  • The Library Redesigned - safety in physical spaces and collections for the next year
  • Prepping in the School Library - what to have on hand to deal with the new normal
  • Our Changed Role - what does the job description look like for school librarians now?
