What Other People Are Saying

"The Elementary Librarian website has helped me greatly as a first year librarian. I honestly had no idea where to begin in teaching library skills. Here, I discovered Common Core aligned lesson plans and even ideas for library stations/centers. Now I have a lessons and a read aloud for the first day in the library. Thanks for the confidence I need to be successful my first year in the library."

"I had an interview for an elementary librarian position and was very nervous. Searching Google found Elementary Librarian for me. It has wonderful resources that gave me great ideas. I've never been a librarian, but thanks to this website, I am now. I've got the job and now the lesson plans. I feel much less anxious about the enormous task ahead of me because of the Elementary Librarian Community. Thank you!"

"Last September I started as a new elementary school librarian (I was previously in a high school). I was unsure of how to start and after some searching I stumbled upon this website. I started using the lesson plans immediately and my fears were mitigated. I not only got off to a great start, but the kids and my administrator loved the lessons as well!"
