Getting students involved has allowed us to better understand what the students want and need. Our Library Helpers Club was formed last year with the goal of getting more student input and student created multimedia.

People often ask me where I came up with the "The Unquiet Library" for my library and “The Unquiet Librarian” as my social media handle. As an Ed.S. student at The University of Georgia, I read a book, Library: An Unquiet History by Matthew Battles, as part of my research study of libraries as sponsors of literacy. This book chronicled how libraries have made a difference throughout history in spite of changes to the information landscape. When I opened the library here at Creekview High School in August of 2006, I wanted to come up with a brand that fit my vision of my high school library as an agent of change and that would be memorable to students. "The Unquiet Library" fits because I want our library to be a place of positive and meaningful "noise" as we grow a library program that makes a difference in the lives of our students and teachers and where students have a place to express and share their ideas. I am decidedly unquiet when it comes to sharing my voice on issues that impact librarianship and learning, but I think it is important that all librarians engage and participate in these conversations for learning that impact our profession now and in the not so distant future.
