For all of those unable to join in the face-to-face meeting at CAL on Saturday, October 9, 2010 at 12:00 noon, here is an opportunity to participate in the conversation! In our CASL meeting at CAL, we will have round table topics aligned to the different subcommittees we will be forming for CASL this year. Please consider leaving your comments and feedback on these posts to participate virtually! If you would like to volunteer for one of these subcommittees, or if you just would like to share your ideas, please leave a comment!
Additionally this year at CAL, we will be launching a “letter to the editor” campaign –to share our stories and help our communities better understand the important work that you and your school library do to assure all students have opportunities to acquire important 21st century skills identified in the revised Colorado Content Standards.
If you would like to participate, you can use the template linked below to craft your letter. Also, you will find links to easily locate Colorado Newspapers as recipients of your letter.

Lastly, we want to share with you a PowerPoint presentation, “School Libraries and Learning” with a script that any school librarian can adapt and make your own by putting in your own pictures, stories, and statistics. Use this to advocate for your program by sharing at a school parent or faculty meeting. The links are below.
We are looking forward to an exciting year in CASL and hope that many of you will choose to become involved!
Co-President, CASL 2009-10
