Dates for the 2012 School Librarian Leadership Academy are Set!
August 6 – August 10th, 2012!
LS 591 3 credit class
For those of you getting your summer plans in order please plan on attending this year’s school librarian leadership academy. In partnership with the Alaska Association of School Librarians the Alaska State Library will put on this year’s academy August 6th – August 10th on the UAA campus. We will have travel assistance stipends available again this year.
The academy will run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, and will include a working lunch session. This three credit graduate level course is a great way to take care of recency credits, and even more importantly it is an opportunity to spend a focused week with colleagues from across the state and leaders in the library profession.
We have a number of exciting presenters in the wings including to our delight, national presenter Teri Lesesne of Making the Match: The Right Book for the Right Reader at the right time, Grades 4-12 fame.
As in past years, a percentage of the available seats to attend the academy will be reserved for school librarians outside of south central Alaska. I encourage anyone interested to submit their application of interest ASAP. Registration will be available online through UAA’s online registration system soon. Don’t delay contact at Jacque.firstname.lastname@example.org for an application of interest.
