Storytelling Discussion Group report ALA annual 2012

ASSOCIATION FOR LIBRARY SERVICE TO CHILDREN

DISCUSSION GROUP FORM: CONFERENCE MEETING REPORT

 
Name of Discussion Group: ____Storytelling DiscussionGroup_____________

Discussion Group Convener/s:      Mary Morgan Smith

Meeting Time: _Sunday, 1:30pm      Meeting Place: Anaheim Convention Center 205B

IN ATTENDANCE: Mary Morgan Smith

DISCUSSION TOPIC: none

SUMMARY OF DISCUSSION: The discussion group usually does not
meet in summer because we attend the SFASE. I did receive questions throughout
the weekend about the Stories for a Saturday Evening program. (I did not get
paperwork in on time.) 

FUTURE PLANS:

1. Acquire another convenor. Most of those
interested to date could not make all or most of the conferences. I want to
look at finding a virtual co-convenor to see what we can do together, and will
contact some of those who could not attend conference.

2. Work on returning Stories for a Saturday Evening to the
ALA agenda. The program began as a general ALA program, I believe.

3. Work with the National Storytelling Network. They
expressed their intention to exhibit at both winter and summer conferences.

QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/ASSISTANCE NEEDED FROM ALSC OFFICE OR
BOARD: With the shape of conference changing, it looks like ALSC will no longer
sponsor SFASE. If that is not the case, I would like to work on next summer’s
program. If ALSC is not involved, what are the channels I need to try to get
this back? I am also on the ALA Public and Cultural Affairs Advisory Committee,
so I will also work with them.
