Hello School Library Staff, and welcome to the new school year!
This year, the Executive Board of the Maine Association of School Libraries (MASL) has a goal to foster the communication and collegiality of library staff throughout the state. Similar to the regional groups used by American Association of School Librarians (AASL), MASL has developed regional groups of all school library staff as a means to accomplish this goal.
Members of each of our regions are encouraged to communicate face-to-face, virtually, by email, by phone or any combination thereof to support one another and share information. We recognize how busy you are at work and home, and do not intend to add to your already full plate. We endeavor to establish a monthly communication opportunity. MASL members and non-members alike are invited to participate in this group. Everyone's voice deserves recognition. Every voice is valuable.
Check your email for news from your regional MASL liaison. The MASL Executive Board looks forward to hearing your voice!
