Colorado Association of School Libraries
Annual Report 2006
Welcome to the inauguration of our CASL: Calling All School Librarians! blog. We hope that you will explore with us this tool for better communication and collaboration across Colorado’s library community!
CASL, the Colorado Association of School Libraries, represents the school library community and media specialists within the Colorado Association of Libraries.
CASL’s Spring Workshop, ‘Midwinter Mardi Gras’ featured CASL’s Nancy White guiding attendees in ‘21st Century Learning’ skills. This workshop was repeated at CAL’s September workshop in Durango, honoring a commitment to offer school programming throughout the state.
In the past year, CASL initiated a listserv for school librarians, initiated discussions regarding school-public library partnerships, and received a small bequest, enabling the organization to sponsor two conference programs in 2005 and 2006. The board completed rewrites to its bylaws and policies, updating to current practice and changing the board’s regional representation from its alignment with the former regional library systems.
2007 President Mary Katherine Johnson will be joined by a return of a former CEMA leader Su Eckhardt, who takes office as President-Elect in October; Gwen Giddens will assume the role of Past President as Kim Meyer completes her term. Secretary Nancy White, Higher Education Representative Jody Howard from the University of Denver, AASL Representative Sherry Crow, and State Library Representative Nance Nassar are also CASL board members. CASL Regional Directors in 2006 were Susan Gilbert, Dianna Fricke, Beth Filar Williams, and Jennifer Hubbard.
