ALSC Board of Directors Committee

In: Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) -- Governance

Greetings, Board colleagues.

I am calling an online meeting of the ALSC Board of Directors.

The agenda item is to respond to the Budget Committee's recommendation to fund the School-Age Programs and Services Committee proposal (attached) for Tween Non-fiction/fiction Paired List Bookmarks and Book List for up to $1500 from the FY2017 Children's Library Services Endowment funds.

Greetings, Board--

As we are currently convened in an online meeting, I would like to include an additional agenda item which has just come to our attention today regarding the Librarian of Congress. The Office of Government Relations (OGR) for the ALA Washington Office has invited ALA divisions to endorse a letter to the Senate Rules Committee asking them to rapidly vote to recommend to the full Senate that Dr. Carla Hayden be confirmed immediately to serve as the nation’s 14th Librarian of Congress.

Discussion Online board meeting: considering LEAP into Science grant support

by Mary Fellows on Wed, Jan 4, 2012 at 11:05 am

Hello ALSC Board!

I am opening the online board meeting to consider whether to continue ALSC support for a grant building upon the pilot grant, LEAP into Science: A National Museum-Library Partnership. The pilot grant and the new grant are a project between The Franklin Institute and The Free Library of Philadelphia.

Additional information is attached.

Hello ALSC Board!

I am opening the online board meeting to consider whether to continue ALSC support for a grant building upon the pilot grant, LEAP into Science: A National Museum-Library Partnership. The pilot grant and the new grant are a project between The Franklin Institute and The Free Library of Philadelphia.

Additional information is attached.

Our support takes the form of continuing to supply an ALSC representative to the Leap into Science advisory board. May I have a motion and a second that ALSC support the grant "LEAP into Science: Understanding and Building Partnerships for Informal Science and Literacy" by providing a representative to the grant advisory board?

Once you see a motion and a second, let's move right into discussion.

Thanks!

by Diane Chen on Sat, Jan 8, 2011 at 01:02 pm

Hello committee members,

I am pleased to continue as your liaison to the ALA Executive Board and to meet with you during Midwinter. I am attaching the Talking Points for Exec. board and for ALA-APA talking points. Let me add to them that the Spectrum report is definitely worth reading on the ALA website. We are currently at $568,526 of our $1 million goal. 100% of the Executive Board members have participated in donating individually and we challenge your committee to do the same. Betty Turrock has an active committee looking for stakeholders in the library world.

Thank you for the opportunity to communicate your concerns and commendations.
