Today's Member of the Month is Jessica Matas. Jessica works at Park View School in Morton Grove, Illinois. She has been a school librarian for 1 year.

Tell us why you decided to join the Elementary Librarian Community. What's your favorite thing about it?

What's the biggest challenge you're currently facing when it comes to your school library?
If you could give one piece of advice to a brand new school librarian (or someone considering becoming a school librarian), what would it be?
