With the shift to Wild Apricot as our website host in the cloud, MASL says goodbye and a very, grateful THANK YOU to Gail Garthwait for her role as the Webmaster for the MASL site.  Gail has been the webmaster almost from the infancy of our MASL presence on the web.   Her expertise in web design and maintenance has been invaluable to our organization. 

Gail has been a very active member of MASL (formerly MEMA) for many years.  She was the Library Media Specialist a the Asa Adams Elementary School in Orono before shifting to the University of Maine.  Gail was also one of the co-authors of the series “Maine Sampler” which integrated library media skills into activities associated with particular books for elementary school students. 

Small wonder that Gail was one of two who were given the 2012 Outstanding Teaching Award from the University of Maine.  This award is presented each year to a faculty member of the College of Education and Human Development.  The awardee is chosen because s/he has “demonstrated outstanding commitment to and ability in the teaching area.”


Congratulations and a hearty Thank You to Gail!

    It has been a pleasure to work with Gail for all these years and to see her doing equally great things at the University. Many thanks Gail.
