OELMA Rosen School Librarian of the Month

We want to Spotlight YOU! 

What are your students, your staff, and YOU doing each month in your Library Media Center?

Click Here to nominate yourself or another Library Media Specialist whom you would like to nominate. Tell us about a powerful lesson, program, or collaboration that showcases what is happening in Media Centers across our state!

The Rosen Librarian of the Month will be awarded monthly. The recipient will be featured on our OELMA website, social media, listservs, and more.  This recognition will allow us to develop an idea bank of best practices being demonstrated across Ohio!

Rosen Publishing is the sponsor of this OELMA Rosen Librarian of the Month award. The Library Media Specialist selected each month will select a set of free books for his/her library, which will be donated by Rosen Publishing. Since being established in 1950, the Rosen Publishing Group offers engaging print and digital books on a wide range of topics that are aligned with curriculum. Rosen is also known for databases and interactive e-books.

OELMA develops an idea bank of best practices for members, you receive new books and the spotlight!  In addition, a letter of acknowledgment will be sent to each recipient's principal and the recipient will receive a signature badge to use in his/her email.
