“Me? A School Librarian” Contest

The “Me? A School Librarian” Contest encourages high school students to pursue a career in the field of school librarianship

2019 Recipient: Samantha Solenday, North Allegheny Senior High School

According to Samantha, “school librarians are critical members in educational settings, as they know how to gather and use the information around them.” She also notes that the resources available through her school library, including her librarian, Laura Wienand, are its most valuable asset. We look forward to welcoming Samantha to this year’s conference so that she can learn more about the profession of school librarianship as she makes plans for a bright future!
