SLIS Alumna Christine Varachi’s book “The Tibrarian Handbook” now available

Catholic University graduate Christine Varachi (MSLS 2005) has written a new book for elementary school librarians entitled The Tibrarian Handbook: A Teacher Librarian’s Guide to Transforming the Library into a Center of Learning. It has been published by Upstart Books. Publisher’s description:

A Tibrarian, put simply, is a teacher-librarian — a librarian who makes her library classroom the most hands-on, supportive and engaging learning environment possible. In this age of ever-emerging technology and educational strategies, in which patrons and librarians alike are constantly presented with new ways to read, research and communicate, the idea of what defines a library is shifting, too. The Tibrarian Handbook provides thoughtful lesson plans, an in-depth look at reading motivation strategies, suggestions for using technology effectively and ideas for keeping students focused, excited and on-task. It is an invaluable guide for the elementary librarian who is looking for new ways to integrate herself into the learning process and seeking to demonstrate her indispensable role in the school community.
