Preparing for the Conference

Advocacy for School Libraries & Education on Prezi

The South Carolina Association of School Librarians‘ 2011 Conference is almost here!  The official conference dates are March 10-11, but pre-conference sessions are the afternoon of March 9th.

Conference is a time for renewal, reflection, networking, learning, and growing.  As the SCASL Advocacy Committee Chair for 2010-2011, I am excited about an announcement we will be making at conference.  As a member of the SCASL IT Committee, I am excited about the unveiling of our new website. Oh, I might as well just say it:  I am excited about conference!

Tracking Conference Happenings

Unfortunately, many South Carolina school librarians will be unable to join us this year.  Once again the economy has made its presence known:  some school districts will not even allow teachers to take professional leave days.

Those of you unable to attend, use this hashtag to search for conference blog posts, tweets, and photos:  #scasl11.  Several of us in attendance will be sharing news and updates over the next few days.

It’s All About Advocacy

As Winston Churchill once said, “Never, never, never, never give up!”  Click on  the image at the top of this post to watch an amazing Prezi created by Gwyneth Jones, the Daring Librarian. And prepare to redouble your efforts to ensure that our children benefit from strong school library programs led by certified school librarians.
