Heather Accepts New Position

I have accepted a new position and my last day with NEFLIN will be July 14th. 

Though I will miss working with the staff here, and serving the entire membership, I am thrilled for the opportunity to remain a NEFLIN member!  I will begin my new position with the St. Johns County Public Library System on July 17th. 

I very much appreciate all of the support, guidance, and encouragement provided by NEFLIN staff and our wonderful members during my time here.  I have learned so much, perhaps most importantly, that there are always new lessons to learn.  It has been a pleasure to serve as your Continuing Education Coordinator.

If you'd like to stay connected, my personal email address is [email protected] and I can sometimes be found on LinkedIn or Facebook.

Spotlight on Clay County Public Schools       

Walk into any school library in the School District of Clay County (SDCC), and you'll find a welcoming environment filled with printed and digital 21st Century materials.  The vision of the Clay County library programs is to provide services, resources, instruction, collaboration, and innovation to empower students and faculty to connect with ideas and information, become informed decision-makers, and lifelong, information-literate learners.  Library doors open before the school day begins and remain open to patrons after the last school bell rings.

Recognizing the current move to become "Future-Ready Librarians," SDCC library m edia specialists have worked diligently to provide flexible spaces that promote inquiry, creativity, collaboration and community; to empower students as creators through the use of Makerspaces for STEM and STEAM, Hyperdoc projects and video production; to collaborate with teachers to design and implement evidence-based curricula that encourage students to practice critical thinking skills, to model digital citizenship, and to become information- literate.

You won't hear shushing in the SDCC Library Media Centers.  Instead, you'll see interaction and excitement as children of all ages learn and grow.
