Love of Literacy and Learning: Celebrating School Library Month

Literature, poetry, coding, robotics, and solar eclipses are just some of the learning topics covered across school libraries in Wisconsin.

Through lessons and collaborative integrations featuring literacy, STEAM, and digital learning, these dedicated professionals contribute to transforming learning experiences for students statewide.
