The Future Ready Librarians (FRL) Summit, facilitated by FRL Leader Shannon McClintock Miller and FRS Program Director Lia Dossin is a professional learning event that aims to empower librarians to become catalysts for change. This hands-on interactive summit is designed to inspire and equip librarians from all walks of life to embrace collaboration and leadership as their superpowers.

In today's rapidly evolving educational landscape, librarians are not just keepers of books but essential partners in fostering 21st-century skills. This summit will delve deep into the Future Ready Librarian framework, focusing on the crucial role of librarians in driving innovation.

We'll show you how working with the entire school community can enhance learning, spur creativity, amplify student voices, cultivate empathy and kindness, and, most importantly, infuse fun into education.

We know that every librarian's community is unique. That's why we'll help you explore how collaboration and leadership can be tailored to fit your specific environment. You'll leave with a toolbox of innovative ideas ready to implement.

Bring your own device (BYOD) to engage with the interactive sessions and collaborative activities fully.

Join us at the Future Ready Librarians Summit, where you'll be inspired, informed, and energized to become a Future Ready Librarian! Don't miss this opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and take your library to the next level.
