Hey guess what! April is not only Autism Awareness month, and National Poetry month. It’s also the best month ever… because it’s National School Library Month!
Created and hosted by the American Association of School Librarians, April is a celebration of school librarians and their programs. We encourage you to host activities to help your school and your local community understand the essential role that your library program plays in transforming learning for your students.
This year’s spokesperson is Dav Pilkey, and the theme is Everyone Belongs @ Your School Library.
Every Wendesday of this month, AASL is hosting webinars at 7:00 pm Eastern time:
