Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"One of the most important books to appear in the literature this year. . . . [I]t provides real people doing real projects that make a difference. Read it; think about it; and, then reach out to others in the school to form a strong team bent on school improvement. Essential. " - Teacher Librarian

"A rich smorgasbord of ideas, this book would be invaluable for an individual librarian looking to become a professional development leader, and for district librarians to use in planning and implementing meaningful district-wide professional development. . . . Highly recommended." - Library Media Connection
