AASL Connection (#aaslcxn) – A Conversation Point for Our Profession

Mark your calendars for March 1, 7pm ET/6pm CT/ 5pm MT/ 4pm PT/ 3pm AT/ 2pm HT! The AASL Board is excited to launch AASL Connection (#aaslcxn), a new conversation point for the school library profession. Highlighted by quarterly live webinars, #aaslcxn is a hashtag with a social life. The hashtag will be integrated into AASL board member social media conversation and will be monitored for questions and content requests for future live webinars, Twitter chats, upcoming conference content requests, and more.

We are excited to announce the agenda for our inaugural live webinar (register here)!

  • We will open with ALA President Jim Neal who will share more about the portion of his presidential initiative that is focused on school libraries. You don’t want to miss this announcement!
  • Following the announcement, the ALA Washington Office will provide the most up-to-date information to ensure we make the strongest impact on our policymakers during the budget-building season. Visit Fund Libraries to use your voice often.
  • Then we will hear brief updates from the board representatives of our three sections: Robert Hilliker from Independent Schools, Maria Cahill from Educators of School Librarians, and Sarah Searles from Supervisors. We want you to hear more about the exciting work the sections are accomplishing and ways that anyone interested can become involved.

The AASL Board appreciates the work that you do every day and hope that #aaslcxn will help us to stay in touch while continuing to empower you to transform teaching and learning.
