Teacher Librarians' Conference 2015
The theme of last year’s Abbotsleigh Teacher Librarian Conference was Visible Libraries, with an exploration of the relevance of a physical library in a digital age. In addition to our plenary speaker there was a panel discussion and concurrent workshops for K-6 and Year 7-12 teacher librarians.
