Spring Sharing was the last Saturday in March at Cheektowaga High School. Many school library media specialists in the area were on hand to hear keynote speaker Patrick Jones talk about young adults and the library, as well as the reluctant reader.
There were two workshop sessions where a wide variety of topics were covered, such as National Board Certification, Grant Writing, and Collaboration. Vendors were on hand for those who had needs to fill in their libraries. Attendees were treated to lunch, catered by Charlie the Butcher. During lunch, the Outstanding Library Advocate Award was presented to Rosina Alaimo from Maple West Elementary School in Williamsville.
Next up, the last SLAWNY meeting of the school year… Wednesday, May 21 at 4:30 pm at Southside Elementary School in Buffalo, featuring local historian and author John Percy. Hope to see you there!
