Movement is designed to address the evolution, future of the school library

Mackin Educational Resources, global distributor of print and digital media to PK-12 schools and libraries, announced the formation of the TYSL movement, or Transform Your School Library.

This philanthropic endeavor was designed to provide school librarians and educators with critical information related to the evolution of today’s school library.

TYSL is comprised of dozens of the country’s leading change-advocates committed to shaping the future
direction of school libraries. Advisory board members include district level professionals, teacher-librarians, superintendents and more.

Several nationally recognized professionals have excitedly signed on as Advocates to help educate and share the vision.

“This revolution will serve to change the school library and school librarianship forever. School librarians are now becoming educational leaders as libraries are being transformed into learning commons that K-12 students love to be in,” remarked Randal Heise, President of Mackin. “TYSL was formed to make this vision a reality in every school across the nation.”

National and regional conferences, webinars and guest-speaking events are just some of the immediate plans scheduled to promote and enlighten schools and the public on this topic. For more information, visit
