CHICAGO – The American Association of School Librarians (AASL) would like to thank Capstone and Follett for their generous support of its 2014 Fall Forum. Representatives of both companies will join school librarians during School Librarians in the Anytime Anywhere Learning Landscape, taking place Oct. 17-18 in St. Louis and at eight satellite sites across the United States.

The AASL Fall Forum is a multi-day national institute held during non-AASL national conference years. A more intimate event, the institute focuses on one topic of importance to the profession. As 2014 attendees work through the multiple roles a school librarian plays in today’s ever changing and expanding learning environment, Capstone and Follett representatives will be on hand to hear their concerns and challenges and be an active part of the conversation.

"The committee wanted to provide opportunities to engage Fall Forum participants in new ways," said Steven Yates, committee chair.  “We rely on our sponsors as we present our continuing education events and we appreciate Follett and Capstone for rising to the anytime, anywhere challenge. Thank you, Follett and Capstone, for your support and for coming to learn with us at Fall Forum 2014."
