LLC: Effective Practice Guide

Supporting Effective Practice in our Library Learning Commons in SD57


Welcome to the SD57 Learning Commons Teacher-Librarian effective practice guide. 

As you explore this guide you will be learning about library learning commons and effective practice built from the collective experience of SD57, BC and Canadian teacher-librarians. We are proud members and supporters of Canadian School Libraries and BC Teacher-Librarian Association and we hope you will join us in contributing to these communities of practice.
