What is one thing you love about being a school librarian?

Helping students and staff find the resources they need is very rewarding.  Seeing a face light up when I connect them to what they are looking for, whether it is an article from a database for an assignment, or a book to read for pleasure, brings me great satisfaction.

What is one thing you love about being a school librarian?

One of the most unique and best aspects of an elementary school librarian is the face to face interaction and instruction with every single student in my school. I am able to build relationships with students and families, share quality and diverse children's literature, and teach students Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grades. Librarians play such an important role in a child's social emotional growth; and it is an honor to foster SEL growth with every student.
