The New Role of Libraries and Librarians The JIS Podcast

    • Education

"Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life." - Sydney Sheldon

A library is one of the greatest assets of any school, and the JIS community is lucky that we have not one but four extensive, up-to-date facilities and an amazing team of knowledgeable librarians. For this episode of the JIS Podcast, our hosts, Middle School Vocal Music Teacher Morgan Banino and PIE Digital Literacy Coach Mindy Slaughter, explore the magical world of libraries with Middle and High School Librarian Matt Schafer. They talk about the new information hub that is the revamped High School Library, the importance of media literacy and the role of technology in libraries, why we need libraries more than ever in an increasingly digital world, and much more! Don’t miss their discussion!
