The term literacy, which is traditionally used to describe the ability to read and write text, is proliferating across library and other educational literature. Financial literacy, digital literacy, civic literacy--it can be dizzying to consider the array of literacies and try to understand how they fit productively into our own school library programs. This issue, guest edited by Tasha Bergson-Michelson and Jole Seroff, examines the underlying commonalities of all these literacies and how a school librarian’s expertise uniquely positions them to hone these skills in students.
