Connection with the Library Community
Growth as a library professional is critical to my mission. I love that every day brings new challenges and opportunities. In order for me to have the greatest impact on my school, I feel it is necessary to be active in the organizations and forums where new ideas and best practices are debated. To that end, I maintain membership in the following professional organizations:
American Library Association
New York Library Association
Central New York School Librarians
American Association of School Librarians
Young Adult Library Services Association
One reason that this career is so appealing to me is that I will have the opportunity to develop school-wide programs to promote literacy and build a community around the library. For my Literacy in School Libraries class, I was assigned to work with a group to develop a project plan for a large event. Having completed this project, I feel confident in my ability to execute such an event, and having seen the amazing programs that other librarians are implementing, I’m excited to get started!
