This is just a reminder that the deadline for the IASL Awards is February 1, 2013. Please see the IASL web page for more details: http://www.iasl-ia.org/.
We give the following awards:
Distinguished Advocate Award given to a non-member who has advocated for or helped further the cause of school librarians and libraries
Vision Award given to a member who has worked to further IASL’s goals and mission
Outstanding School Library Program recognition of the member’s program
We also recognize members who are retiring. If you know of people who are retiring please let me know.
Finally, we are transitioning to a new awards chair. Alicia Patten will be coming on as the IASL awards chair in 2014. You can contact her or me if you have any questions.
We are looking forward to our IASL Conference April 7-8 and would love to award some of these to deserving people! We will also be announcing the 2013 Book Award Winners. Don’t miss out!
