Since the start of our new membership cycle, we have welcomed several new members to MASL! We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new members: Jessi Allaire, Ashley Austin, Kerry Brenner, Sandi Brawn, Dana Dowling, Jessie Goodwin, Therese O’Hara, Samuel Huertas, Cynthia Moloney, Dianna Pomerleau, Matthew Reutershan, and Debra Tanguay. We are very happy to have you as part of MASL!
Please help spread the word of our organization. If you know of any new library staff, please encourage them to join us.
By being a part of the MASL community, you are gaining many benefits that come with your membership. These perks include reduced rates on our professional development opportunities (including virtual and in-person events), advocacy tools, intellectual freedom resources, scholarships, and eligibility for MASL awards. We hope that you are able to utilize the many resources that your MASL membership provides!
As mentioned above, as part of your MASL membership, you receive a discount for our professional development opportunities. Please consider taking advantage of this perk and register for our upcoming event — Lawrence Alexander Dine and Discuss: Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Your School Library. This event will be held on October 27th at 4:30pm. While Mr. Alexander’s presentation is virtual, you can watch it live and in person with other educators at sites around the state. After the presentation, you’ll have a chance to debrief and discuss (with snacks!) with your small group. If you’d rather watch the presentation from home, there’s that option as well. Register today at the MASL member rate of $15!
We hope your year is off to a great start! We are incredibly fortunate to have so many dedicated school library staff members, and we greatly appreciate all that you do for your school communities!
