April is School Library Month
School libraries and librarians provide vital services for their school communities
April is School Library Month. School libraries and school librarians provide vital services for their school communities. In addition to being a key ally in helping students develop and build literacy skills, your school librarian is your partner in curriculum evaluation and instructional materials curation.

For more than 25 years, Ohio’s school librarians have spent countless hours contributing their knowledge and expertise to the INFOhio project. This year alone, Ohio school librarians have curated multiple content packages on a variety of high need subjects and reviewed hundreds of instructional supplements, all to make it easier for Ohio educators to find the right resources for their students. 

To learn more about how Ohio's school librarians are supporting their colleagues and students, read The Power of School Libraries. Thank you, Ohio school librarians!

INFOhio ICoach Spotlight:
Kimberly Carlson
Every quarter, INFOhio features the amazing work of INFOhio ICoaches across the state. Not only are INFOhio ICoaches trained to share INFOhio’s quality resources with their schools and districts, they are also champions of equity.
Kimberly Carlson is this quarter’s INFOhio ICoach Spotlight. Ms. Carlson shares that her “biggest win” as an ICoach was when a special education teacher shared that she now uses INFOhio with her students frequently after attending one of Ms. Carlson’s PD sessions. The teacher uses INFOhio to build background knowledge for her students to scaffold their learning and make lessons more engaging.

Summertime is right around the corner! Extend student learning with fun summer activities and resources on INFOhio's Summer Learning page.
