AASL Wants to Hear Your Story
AASL and the ALA Office for Library Advocacy (OLA) seek stories about parents and students who advocate for their school libraries. Stories shared will help AASL and OLA spread examples of parent and/or student advocacy to stakeholders nationally.
Stories should demonstrate how students and parents value their school library program and the essential place it holds in developing lifelong learning. Stories may feature parents and students who have gone to extraordinary measures to save their school library program and their certified school librarian. Stories may also portray parents and students engaging in small acts of everyday advocacy in support of their school library program.
Stories may be submitted on the AASL website at www.ala.org/aasl/stories. The deadline for submission is April 11. AASL/OLA staff may follow-up for further information.
