One for the Books: Ingram has options for K12 libraries

By: Jeanne Martin, Collection Development K-12
Educators have a lot on their plate. I know because I worked as a middle school teacher for 12 years and within the children’s department of a local library for two.

Yet, I tend to find a particular sort of affirmation in hearing from voices who don’t necessarily have it all together and don’t mind letting their eccentricities shine a bit.  

Tuesdays with ipage® Webinar Series

Beginning February 7, you’ll have the opportunity to learn first-hand from our team of ipage experts.
