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.

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.
