Librarians Meet at Victorious Kidss Educares
“Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.”― Neil Gaiman
The ‘Liferarian’ is a collaborative group started 3 years ago by like-minded librarians from IB accredited schools. The aim of this group is to collaborate, showcase, learn and support each other. The group actively collaborates through various platforms on social media and meets once every year. The 4th Liferarian meet was organized at Victorious Kidss Educares on 16 Nov. 2019. The meet witnessed participation of about 27 library professionals from 17 IB schools from Mumbai, Pune, Kohapur and Aurangabad which was much more than expected. All the visitors were very impressed and mesmerized by the school atmosphere. There was a common echo that the school atmosphere has vibrant and positive vibe, you can actually feel it. All were impressed by the facilities like the large library space, the conference room, dining hall and most importantly the natural light in the school which many of the schools are deprived of due to space constraints. All the participants appreciated and thanked the school for providing the space for the meet, all the facilities including ICT and WiFi and more over the delicious lunch.
The meet was well planned and organized with sessions on ‘The Role of IB Librarian’, ATL and Curriculum, Tech-integration in library, Academic Integrity, and Library Space Management. PYP Head Ms. Ira Ghosh addressed the meet with words of motivation and also felicitated the mentors of the Liferarian group.
