    As schools in Maine prepare to reopen, it’s crucial that school library staff plan for library instruction and programming that meet the needs of students and teachers. MASL invites you to attend a panel discussion about school library programs during the COVID-19 crisis. School librarians, Tina Berumen, Anita Cellucci, Amanda Jones and Matthew Winner will share ideas for library programming, instruction, collaboration and leadership. The webinar will also highlight information from AASL’s document, “School Librarian Role in Pandemic Learning Conditions.”

    This webinar is free to MASL members. Non-members may register for $25. The $25 webinar registration fee includes one year of MASL membership and access to other MASL webinars during the membership year.

    Tina Berumen is the coordinator of library services for Coppell ISD in Coppell, Texas. Tina has been a STEM School Librarian and has presented on STEM in the Library, Makerspaces, Global Connections, E-Books and Digital Resources. She is an active member of the Texas Library Association, Texas Computer Library Association and an advisory board member for the Mackin Educational Resources Transform Your School Library movement.
