The silver fox from bone&silver hits it on the head with this post on Does setting boundaries make you uncomfortable? Good: you’re doing it right (Part 1)

I was inspired by this post on Building Emotional Literacy and Empathy in the library.

I’m very fortunate as the Library I work for has the most diverse collection, which supports teachers, and educators across Victoria. But I know only too well of Libraries that aren’t. Angela P. Dodson expands on the importance of diversity in Children’s Libraries with a thought provoking article.
A post full of inspirational ways to celebrate the Bat Family can be found here.
I’ve been fortunate enough to pick up extra time at a High School Library.

ALSC posts a lot of inspiring and relevant information for practicing Librarians. I wanted to bring this particular post to your attention as it’s full of ideas.
