Booked Inn named in Top 50 School Library Blogs

library science degree

My name is Charles and I wanted to let you know that Booked Inn was selected to our Top 50 School Library Blogs, based on recommendations from other school library blogs and because we think your site is awesome for people interested in school libraries.

Here is our review of your blog:

“Sydney, Australia is home base to Booked Inn blogger Ian McLean, who finds YouTube brings a life cycle unit to life and helps students make global connections, while clips of rapping readers put a fresh twist on storybook classics; promoting 2012 as a National Year of Reading is a cause embraced by this librarian/teacher and kid-lit reviewer who shares the journey of a shoestring library makeover on this blog.”

We are a career site for teachers that provides helpful information for individuals interested in becoming a teacher or school librarian. We provide quality information that is researched and written by teachers and we are recommended as a trusted resource by universities, teachers, and teacher associations.

Best wishes,
