In addition to electing new officers and tweaking our constitution we had a surprise visit via Skype with AASL Executive Director Sylvia Norton, terrific networking sessions at all three grade levels, launched the new Support Staff Award and renamed our Walter J. Taranko Library Media Specialisto f the Year Award simply as the Walter J. Taranko Award.

Congrats to Eileen Broderick, MASL President, on her article just published in the Maine ASCD Journal
The article is titled "Student Learning and the School Library." It is in volume XXIX 2013 on p. 11-14. Description..."Strong school library programs are key to students' learning because they build on classroom curriculum, forward higher order thinking and technology skills and provide continual access to learning through their web sites." We're working on getting copies of the article and will share that information as soon as we have it.
