We would like to welcome you to your local Teacher Librarian network. Please find below information of past sessions to give you an idea of the PL that can be provided and our plans for 2018.

With the introduction of mandatory hours of PL for all teaching staff, teacher librarians will need to source appropriate learning to complement their PDPs. The Sutherland Shire Teacher Librarians Network provides valuable professional development opportunities for teacher librarians and library assistants.
