CHICAGO – By sharing the wealth of AASL membership with a colleague, Stephie Luyt has won a free year of AASL membership. Luyt 's name was drawn as a monthly winner of the American Association of School Librarians’ (AASL) Share the Wealth Campaign. By referring Genevieve Minor to AASL, Luyt has also been entered to win an AASL National Conference & Exhibition grand prize package, which includes registration, airfare, and hotel accommodations.
When asked why she recommended AASL membership to her colleague, Luyt, an elementary school librarian and 2017/2018 Lilead Fellow, replied: “AASL is an important resource for anyone working in school libraries. The advocacy support tools are invaluable in our current climate. The national conference provides incredible professional learning and networking opportunities. AASL membership is a worthwhile investment!”
Using the “Share the Wealth” membership acceptance form located on the AASL website, all current, personal AASL members are encouraged to reach out to their colleagues and invite them to join the only national professional organization focused on school librarians and the school library community.
For each member recruited, the referring AASL member will receive an entry in a monthly drawing for a complimentary year of ALA and AASL membership. Their name will also be entered into a final grand prize drawing for an AASL National Conference & Exhibition package, which includes registration, three nights lodging and round-trip airfare to Phoenix, Arizona, in November 2017. Multiple referrals will be accepted and will increase their chances to win.
To participate and earn entry into prize drawings, membership acceptance forms must be returned with payment directly to AASL. Memberships processed by ALA – either online or on paper – will not be included in the “Share the Wealth” campaign. For complete program rules and regulations, visit www.ala.org/aasl/STW.
