Conclusion The Libraries for future learners conference highlighted great collaborative practice and potential for future learning in school libraries. School libraries are indeed for future learners! Teacher librarians and school libraries need to collaborate with teachers and students to provide engaging and innovative learning to support school and curriculum priorities, creatively drawing on their specialist role. Enjoy a short capture of some of the conference experience. The enthusiastic responses and suggestions in the conference evaluations confirm the success of the conference as part of the Department’s strategic support for school libraries and teacher librarians. We look forward to offering another Department conference for school libraries in early October, 2016.
