School Librarian Saturday: 2021 Notable Children’s Digital Media List
In School Librarian Saturday, I’m going to share the websites, databases, apps, and other stuff I use with students in my K-5 teacher-librarian role, under the cover of internet darkness (see: the weekend).

Today we have a list that I love: the annual Notable Children’s Digital Media list from ALSC.
What It Is: Every year a committee of librarians select a short list of useful websites and apps for children 14 and under, with a focus on education.
What’s Good About It: As a school librarian, this is a list I always look forward to. There are always a few resources that are new to me that I end up using with students or adding to our library website.
What’s Bad About It: As the years have passed a lot of educational resources for kids are available as IOS apps only. This is a bummer for students with browser access only.
Last Words: If you’re a school librarian who isn’t looking at this list every year, you’re missing out.
