Why Krista “Hearts” OELMA

Today we hear from Krista Taracuk, the 2014 OELMA Outstanding Contributor Award winner, about why she loves OELMA and is a proud Ohio School Librarian: 

I think it is fitting during School Library Month to reflect, as Krista does in her video, on how libraries are evolving and on how we are moving beyond the four walls of our library, both in the services we provide and in the way we interact with our colleagues.  For that reason, OELMA is joining the Twitterverse! 

OELMA has teamed with #OHedChat to focus the April 20th Twitter chat on the evolving role of school libraries. Be sure to tune into #OHedChat on 4/20/15 at 9pm to join the discussion with other Ohio educators and show off OELMA strong!

Then, we are hosting our very own #OELMAchat on Friday, April 24th at 7 pm with our brand new “Librarians Who Tweet!” We will be discussing what is new and notable in the world of K-12 literature. 

Please mark your calendars and plan to join us for these chats and opportunities to connect with other school librarians and other educators in Ohio and beyond.  We can learn from each other and show off all of the unique things going on in school libraries today.  We’ll show the world #OELMAstrong!

Happy School Library Month!
