Liferarian Association is offering two programs to empower Librarians.

The Liferarian Association Coaching Team has developed a program to provide professional development to librarians and help support educational institutions to build a library/learning hub to meet the National or International Curriculum.

The teacher library workshops are for educators and individuals who aspire to use cutting-edge, 21st-century strategies and knowledge to enhance the school community. These modules will include all forms of literacy, including information & media literacy, understand copyright, digital storytelling, and more. The workshops will help build a growth mindset, necessary skills, and knowledge to manage a school library and deliver relevant lessons in today’s changing environment. It will help develop independent skills in resource planning, management, and collaboration among educators. Coaches’ descriptions are available here.
