Future Ready Librarians® Playbook

A guide to support Future Ready Librarianship

Future Ready Librarians® (FRL) was created in 2016. Over the past five years, FRL has helped change the conversation about school libraries and the role of librarians in leading, teaching, and supporting innovation in their institutions. Whether you are new to the network or just want a quick review, this resource is designed to help you understand FRL and how to transform your library practice, program, and profession.
