Hi! I’m Manuela Aronofsky. I have my Master of Science in Library & Information Science from Pratt Institute (2019), with a concentration in Youth, Literacy, and Outreach. I currently work as the Middle School Technology Integrator, and Digital Essentials teacher at The Berkeley Carroll School in Brooklyn. I’m excited to be working now at the intersection of youth technology and youth libraries. My educational mission is to integrate technology efficiently, ethically, and collaboratively into the middle school classroom and curriculum.

I am also currently co-chair of the ALSC Children + Technology committee (see the blog posts I’ve written for them here). I also serve on the NYSAIS Education, Information & Technology Committee, which organizes the annual NEIT conference for librarians & technologists working in New York independent schools.

My other library-related interests include: youth data and digital literacy; expanding inclusivity and cultural competency in the school library environment; coordinating volunteer work with the Prison Library Support Network; art librarianship, and teaching the act of reading as a community-building experience.


Beyond libraries, I have 10+ years professional experience in independent bookstores (my second love!) – including most recently as a manager at New York City’s Strand Book Store. I’m also a notary public as of 2022! Contact me if you need a document notarized.

This site includes a resume of my various work experiences, professional projects implemented in the school library environment, examples of library-centered projects completed during my MLIS,  as well as information on my professional and volunteer history.

Please contact me if you wish to re-use, or re-purpose any of the projects, and/or materials linked to on this site.

Send me a message at: manuela dot aronofsky at gmail.com, or via my contact page for any further questions.
