Leading from the Library

Making A Difference With School Libraries Throughout An Entire State (with Monica Treptow)

Episode Summary

In Wisconsin, having a district library plan that is approved by the school board is a legislative requirement, but following a rule does not invite inspiration or provide a complete picture of why this work needs to be done. We have worked to create a process for library planning that incorporates aligning library program goals to school and district needs and creating a pathway for building positive relationships in an effort to increase visibility and value of library programs throughout our state.
