AASL 2021: Salt Lake City
Welcome to our first hybrid blog post. This format was dreamed up while NSLA members got together for dinner in Salt Lake City during the conference. If you like it, please let us know!
So, what did I learn other than what I shared in the video? Tons!
By NSLA President, Crys Bauermeister
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends… and now that this song is stuck in your head, it’s also true everything we do in the library world. Anytime we can suggest a book for a student, anytime we can open the world of reading, anytime we can enhance a student's life because of something we have done, our show never ends.
No matter what the world situation is, we will always have readers, we will always have users, we will always continue to innovate. If you didn't have a chance to view all the sessions from Nebraska School Librarian's Day in October, never fear. The links will be active for quite some time. If you misplace the email with the links, please email our Executive Secretary. Thank you to Erin H, Kelly K, McKenzie W, Dana F, Peggy D, Carole M, Alicia L, Ashley W, Erin S, and Alexandra B for sharing their wisdom. Although we were unable to meet in person (which we all know is so good for our mental health), the bonus is all the sessions are recorded so you can listen to them in the background of something else you are doing, and then when you hear something that sparks your fancy, you can rewind. Otherwise, we would have just shared our slide decks.
We have some amazing librarians in our state who really are on the cutting edge of what being a librarian is. If you need a jumpstart this time of year, just view one of these sessions! One more not so shameless plug. If you can sneak away from your building for NETA April 21-22, you'll be treated to some more live connections with the amazing school librarians in our state, as well as Amanda Jones, school librarian of the year, who will be our featured speaker.
Come and see the show!
