Summer Institute with the Daring Librarian, Gwyneth Jones


Chock full of easy, fun ideas, Gwyneth will begin with Choose to be Fierce & Future Ready --
Easy ways to promote community connections, reading promotion, and advocacy with Mobile Media.
She will then present two additional sessions with an emphasis on practical ideas for connecting with students
and using the tools you have available to you in effective ways. Gwyneth is a working school librarian
who implements the ideas she talks about with real teachers and real students.
The day will conclude with two final sessions where you will have a chance to talk with your peers about
books and library lessons for K-6 and 7-12, so bring your questions and best ideas!
