Transforming School Libraries: Children’s Access to Reading Materials

Recent events have transformed school libraries and the ways children access reading materials. In this session, participants will explore research, then informally collect and examine data to define recent pivots to varied reading platforms. Innovative practices that have served as solutions to providing the best opportunities for our students will be shared. By reflecting on exchanged experience, participants will discover innovative solutions for access. Session recorded during the 2021 AASL National Conference.
