September 28 Meeting Recap

NYCSLA dedicated our first meeting of 2010 to explore ways to advance professionally as a school librarian. Guest speaker Laura Lutz, blogger of the children’s literature and food inspired Pinot and Prose, gave us key insights into becoming a successful blogger. Her career story is a testimony to the power that networking with fellow professionals through social networking media and local kid lit events has on one’s career. Then we broke off into library camp and small groups discussed other ways to advance your career. Please view our library camp wiki to get ideas for making your career soar and satisfy.

We announced two new NYCSLA grants for our members. One is a conference award to be awarded to a member to attend a state or national conference. The other is a principal’s award. We will honor one principal who has faithfully supported school library collaboration and collection development. For more details and the application, please visit us on November 2nd at our NYCSLA table at the School Library Services Fall conference. The application deadline for both grants will be February 1, 2011.

    Hi There,

    I love the Website and all the PDs offered by NYCSLA. If you need a space for future PDs, please consider our library at Bryant High School in Astoria. We are located one block from the R and M trains, and there is an easy transfer from the E train right across the platform at Queens Plaza. Of course, I would have to get the approval of the administration, but I’m sure that will pose no problem. We have about 30 working desktops, 15 laptops, a Smartboard, LCD projectors, a large area with about 16 tables, a smaller area with 8 round tables, and a separate classroom with a wall-mounted Smartboard. Our library closes at 3:30, and I am willing to do Saturdays if my principal approves. Just thought I’d put it out there. Have a good day. 🙂
