Hello NSLA Members & School Librarians in Nebraska!
My name is Courtney Pentland, and I will be serving as the Nebraska School Librarians Association president this year. I cannot even begin to describe how excited I am to be working with our current executive board, liaisons, and committee members. This group of fabulous education professionals is passionate about school libraries and school librarians in Nebraska. We wanted to give you just a few updates on what you can look forward to from your professional organization this year. (Many of the items below are based off of feedback that we received from over 400! school library folks who answered our survey in the fall of 2017.)
For a full list of our board members, liaisons, and committee chairs, please visit our website. www.neschoolibrarians.org
