Abstract: Social media has permeated society. All generations use it. Yet, there is still apprehension about utilizing social media in educational settings. Despite internet filtering in the United States for the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the presence of restrictive school district policies, school librarianship professional literature champions social media communication as a strategy for promoting programming and engaging in professional development activities. This exploratory quantitative study examines school librarian perceptions of social media as a tool for professional development and programming. Suggestions for future research are provided.
