SBISD Libraries Featured at National Meeting

Several Spring Branch ISD school libraries, campus librarians and administrators and principals are featured in a corporate video created by North Mankato, Minn.-based children’s book publisher Capstone. 

The publisher’s video, titled “School Libraries Matter: The Changing Role of the School Librarian,” was broadcast in October at the annual School Library Journal Conference, which was held in Minnesota.

A Capstone-based video crew visited Rummel Creek Elementary School and other district campuses last year to support a publisher’s book series titled “Pebble Go.” 

While visiting SBISD, the video crew interviewed two librarians, Karen Harrell of Rummel Creek and Karyn Lewis of Meadow Wood Elementary. Also included are Meadow Wood Elementary Principal Pamela Redd and SBISD’s Director of Innovative Media Resource Systems JoAnn Conlon.

The video also features positive remarks about changing trends in children’s books and school libraries by Sylvia Knight Norton, executive director with the American Association of School Libraries and Rebecca Miller, who is the editorial director of the School Library Journal.
