Building Connections for Learning
and Advocacy

Welcome to Judi Moreillon's Cyber Home:
Building Connections for Learning and Advocacy

I am a candidate for the 2019-2020 President of the American Association of School Librarians (AASL).


I am the author of three professional books for school librarians and classroom teachers. My fourth book with ALA Editions Maximizing School Librarian Leadership: Building Connections for Learning and Advocacy will be published in June, 2018.

I am the author of three books for children and families. In addition, I maintain several Web sites that I authored or illustrated. See my Author Page.

News: "Books for Dallas Babies," a collaborative project of the Friends of the Dallas Public Library and Parkland Health and Hospital System, gave 12,000 copies of Vamos a leer/Read to Me to families of newborns in 2016. The partners continued this successful project in 2017. Tarrant County/Fort Worth Public Library and the JPS Health Network began their "Books for Tarrant County Babies" partnership in January, 2017. The two inititiaves have a shared Web-presence at Books for Texas Babies.

I have also been a classroom teacher, district-level librarian mentor, literacy coach, and classroom teacher educator. I taught preservice school librarians and children's and youth services public librarians for twenty-one years and am a recently retired associate professor.

I am an ardent advocate for high-quality school library programs faciliated by professional school librarians centered on classroom-library collaboration for instruction, the thoughtful integration of authentic children’s and young adult literature and relevant technology tools into the classroom curriculum, and family literacy.
