I think I've become so accustomed to the conversational text and passionate voices of Heinemann and Teachers College materials, that most all other PD books seem.. stiff... dry... boring

Research for student learning with librarian leadership. I look forward to evaluating what is already in place, what can be improved and what needs to be started. I am also trying to organize a district librarian's group read of this title. It will be helpful to read it again and discuss it with other professionals.

It's really ideological and not so practical. Would be a nice intro for administrators who want to understand the new roles that libraries are taking on. It's also a great tool for librarians working on mission statements and other forms of advocacy.

Very thought-provoking material on the role of the TL in school libraries. Practical examples and doable suggestions to implement in a collaborative school setting.
