Maggie from Illinois ,

Thank you!

Amy Hermon’s expertise, honesty, and fantastic guests fueled my fire to pursue this career path. Thank you for the remarkable episodes that propelled me through graduate school studies, numerous walks/runs/bike rides, commutes to and from my first two years as a school librarian, and of course as I organize materials at home and school.

LMS_Rothmier ,

Excellent School Librarian resource!

I am so happy to have found Amy’s podcast. She has a great variety of guests (elementary through secondary) that cover topics that school librarians deal with on a daily basis. Her interview style is friendly and makes her guests feel welcome. It’s a fantastic resource to find answers to questions you may have about your school librarian position.

KKBergerson ,

Fantastic resource

This podcast is fantastic! Amy does a wonderful job covering a wide range of topics relevant to school librarians with interesting and knowledgeable guests. School Librarians United has been extremely helpful in preparing me for challenges I will face as a future school librarian.
