Greater Boston Cooperative Library Association. This group is composed of private school librarians working to share ideas, make collaborative purchasing agreements, and promote professional education. Suzanne Levasseur shared what she learned from the New Hampshire School Library Conference. In this slide, she shares what Doug Johnson said about knowing ones’ worth: understanding what school librarians do better than anyone else in the school, and making sure that the faculty and administrators understand how much we contribute to student success. We also heard from Liz Gray who shared information gleaned from her trip to the Oxford libraries as part of an Oxbridge Academic summer program, “The Library and the Academy.” We also had a chance to congratulate Liz Gray on her wonderful interview in the New York Times, Do School Libraries Need Books? Great job, Liz!
