Fewer than half of all states currently require a school librarian in their public schools. In recent years, however, legislation has been introduced in several additional states. Who is leading these efforts and what insights can they share with the rest of us? We will hear from three states and follow their presentations with a facilitated discussion for participants. The representatives from the three states are:
Debra Kachel, Legislative Liaison, Pennsylvania School Librarians Association
James Keehbler, Former President, New Jersey Library Association
Mernie Maestas, President, Missouri Association of School Librarians
When: Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 2:00:00 PM CDT – 3:00:00 PM CDT
Attendance during the live webinar is free and open to all. A seat in the webinar is reserved for the first 100 logins.
All registrants will receive a link to the recorded webinar if it fills to capacity.
The link to the recording will be available at http://www.ala.org/advocacy/chapter-advocacy-exchange
