Afternoon all!

Quick reminder that the SCASL Messenger is still accepting articles for our Spring Edition.  For this issue we are requesting submissions that feature the many ways that we seek to engage students in our library spaces.

Theme: Engagement!  What have you done this year to increase patron engagement in your library?  Have you held a book tasting recently?  Tell us about it!  Are you getting ready to set up some blind dates with books?  Let us know!  Makerspaces, coding clubs, video games, whatever!  We want to hear about all of the cool things that you are doing to increase engagement in your library.

Length: 200 words and up!

Deadline: February 16th.

As always, we will also accept articles that highlight exceptional moments in your school library.

Please submit articles as a Word document and attach any images you have of your awesomeness to [email protected]

Thanks!

We have been notified today that the Pee Dee Regional Meeting for Librarians has had to be cancelled due to the date no longer being available, as it is now a scheduled make-up day.
