In this special episode, we talk with the School Library Journal School Librarian of the Year, K.C. Boyd, and the two School Librarian of the Year finalists, Pia Alliende and Andy Spinks.
Amid book challenges, political and cultural attempts to staunch access to books that reflect the history and lives of our youth, and funding cuts to school libraries, these courageous library heroes talk about their grit and determination to provide mirrors, inspiration, and access to information for all youth.
Andy, K.C., and Pia discuss preparing for challenges, antiracist and inclusive collection development, and how to keep our eyes on the prize of nurturing healthy, critical, and curious youth.
School Library Journal School Librarian of the Year 2023 Nominations are due December 5, 2022.
