Believe in Yourself

Ziggy Marley was born on this day in 1968.¬† One of the children of reggae legend Bob Marley, Ziggy would go on to become a famous musician in his own right.¬† Many might disagree, but some feel his best work was “Believe in Yourself.”

“Believe in Yourself” is the theme song for “Arthur” the beloved animated program based on the books by Marc Brown.

ISLM and CLM Connections: Arthur gave us a library anthem, the “Library Card Song.”

Not Just a Place…

teacherlibrarianOn School Library Day, it is important to remember that the School Library is not just a place. More importantly, it is the people who are a part of the School Library who give it life. Everyone who works in the school library, in the physical space, or online, contributes to the vital role of the school library in education.

Thanks to Mia MacMeekin for this wonderful infographic on the role of the Teacher Librarian (left).  Every school needs a Teacher Librarian working with the students, staff, administration, parents and other stakeholders in the success of a school library program. Without a Teacher Librarian, a school library is just another room after all.
