Communicate! Collaborate! Advocate!
If not you, then who?
Create a Communication Plan!
Identify your audiences and target communications specifically to each group, but don't be concerned if information overlaps
- Families need to know how the library program benefits students and how they can help
- Staff need to know about resources and services that you are providing and any collaborative units that you have co-taught
- Principals hate surprises, so keep yours informed about library happenings!

professional activities or conferences attended
problems and how they are being addressed
