CHICAGO – The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) will hold its annual virtual membership meeting at 6:00 p.m. Central on Tues., June 4. To RSVP, visit www.ala.org/aasl/membership. The membership meeting requires no official vote of AASL membership, so all school library professionals are invited to attend. 

The annual membership meeting provides AASL members with a “state of the association” update from leadership. During the event, AASL President Kathryn Roots Lewis will hold an "AASL Community Conversation" on initiatives, programs, recognitions, and financial standing. School librarians are encouraged to submit questions for Lewis using the online form at www.ala.org/aasl/conversation. Questions must be submitted by end of day May 29.

"Come learn what the largest association for school librarians is doing for you," said Lewis. "It has been a busy, exciting, and important year for AASL and consequently, school librarians. Hear about 2018-2019 from my perspective. Do you have questions? Be sure to submit them! I can't wait to see you and have a dialogue!"

Holding the annual meeting virtually allows a greater number of AASL members to attend, participate, and stay up-to-date with their association. The online format also allows all members of the profession to be informed on the work AASL undertakes as the only national professional membership organization focused solely on the needs of school librarians and the school library community.

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