Discussion Do you need AASL materials for an upcoming state conference?

by Jonna Ashley (staff) on Mon, Jul 28, 2014 at 04:19 pm

I have started receiving requests for AASL promotional flyers, and the membership booth, for affiliate state meetings. If you would also like to request AASL materials to display at your state conference this fall you may use the attached form. You can request specific items, or just let AASL put together a variety of flyers on membership, professional development, publications etc. For larger meetings, you can also request that the AASL membership display and sign be sent to you.

by Jonna Ashley (staff) on Thu, Mar 20, 2014 at 11:36 am

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.

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.

Discussion Important Legislative Action needed by April 2

by Jonna Ashley (staff) on Fri, Mar 28, 2014 at 04:11 pm

Hello AASL Affiliate Assembly,

Hello AASL Affiliate Assembly,

ALA recently put up a Legislative Action item that we would like for as many affiliates as possible to rally around. The item requests that you ask your Senators to support funding for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy Act (IAL). While both measures are extremely important, we are particularly interested in gathering support for the IAL component. Please take a moment, before April 2nd, to take action of these important asks. Here is a link to our Legislative Action Center where you can sign both letters:

Thank you!
