Why Michelle “Hearts” OELMA

Our featured “I HEART OELMA” video this week is of Michelle Lombardi, a 2014 Emerging Leader Award winner:
In addition to managing her library in two languages (she works at a bilingual school!), Michelle is also co-chairing this year’s Awards and Scholarship Committee.  Do you know someone who is doing amazing work for school libraries in Ohio? Consider nominating them for one of this year’s many awards and scholarships.  Applications are due April 1st.
