Library Matters has developed a program to support and provide professional development to librarians. Library Matters Consultancy can help support educational institutions to build their library/learning hub to meet their requirements of the school’s curriculum.
The teacher library workshops are for educators and individuals who aspire to use cutting-edge, 21st-century strategies and knowledge to enhance the school community. These modules will include all forms of literacy including information & media literacy. The workshops will help build a growth mindset, necessary skills, and knowledge to manage a school library and deliver relevant lessons in today’s changing environment. It will help build independent skills in resource planning, management, and collaboration among educators.

After attending the workshops, Librarian Amita Kubal says ” While working as a school librarian, I felt my MLIS Degree was not enough, and it had not prepared me for the present Librarian’s role. I was struggling and needed to upgrade my skills in the direction of becoming an active librarian. At this point, I got guidance from Ms. Heeru Bhojwani who raised our capacities. We learned different reading engagement activities, use of open source applications as a part of the Information and Media Literacy, Creative writing techniques, Fair use Guidelines, and other tips. The training was helpful to move from a Library Administrator to becoming a Teacher Librarian”.
Librarian Manjuushas Shriram Maadiwale from Aga Khan School, Hyderabad says, “Ms. Heeru Bhojwani, excels in her profession and taught me how to create a website for my Library, how to locate, access evaluate resources and cite sources (Information Literacy).”
