CHICAGO – The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) has appointed five school library professionals to serve as members of the new AASL social media editorial board. Editorial board members will curate and compose social media posts for AASL platforms. The editorial board includes:

  • Edie Crook, school librarian, Hawks Nest STEAM Academy, N.C.
  • Nancy Jo Lambert, school librarian, Reedy High School, Texas

  • Jane Lofton, school librarian (retired), Mira Costa High School, Calif.

  • Maureen Schlosser, school librarian (retired), Colchester Elementary School, Conn.

  • Paula Wichmann, director of library services, Mount St. Joseph High School, Md.

“I’m excited to see AASL’s reach on social media expand even further with the launch of the editorial board,” said AASL President Audrey Church. “Creation of a social media team composed of practitioners was a recommendation of AASL Past President Leslie Preddy’s presidential think tank. With these talented voices onboard, AASL’s platforms are guaranteed to provide stronger informal personal learning networks.”

AASL’s social media platforms are a vehicle to share AASL news and information; educational trends; and interact with the public, members of the school library profession, and other educational outlets and organizations. Content shared on AASL social media advances the association’s mission to empower leaders to transform teaching and learning. AASL can be found on Facebook, Goggle+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Twitter.

The American Association of School Librarians,, a division of the American Library Association (ALA), empowers leaders to transform teaching and learning.
