Coaches Academy for Librarians will meet each Wednesday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. starting February 25 and running through April 1.

Coaches Academy for Librarians is an advanced TPS Level III course designed to help school librarians and media specialists develop the skills and knowledge to lead teachers in using Library of Congress digitized sources effectively across curriculum. Participants earn up to 20 CEU Hours (optional 10 more post-course).

The course will be facilitated by librarian and TPS Consultant, Jennifer Hanson, and is intended to help participants develop leadership skills and gain knowledge about educational uses of the Library of Congress resources. 

Participants will experience live audio chat sessions, peer collaboration and discussion and independent reading and project development. 

Participants who have not completed TPS Level I are asked to complete a pre-requisite, TPS BASICS, before September 3. Login information is provided upon registration for Coaches Academy for Librarians.
