Our libraries are sites for authentic, meaningful, real world learning opportunities through the power of local and global storytelling. Utilising the power of story, this presentation acts to position the capacity of school libraries and teacher librarians to design, create and inspire student engagement and establish vital local and global community connections. Consider innovative ways school libraries and the teacher librarians that create magic within them, are 21st century depositories for capacity building across community inquiry, wellbeing, creativity, critical thinking, technology and most important of all, connection.
