Description

What began as an event to build community during the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic has evolved into a monthly opportunity for school library professionals to network and brainstorm around a central theme. During the town halls, participants will share successes, solicit ideas, and strategize the best ways to meet the needs of you and your learners. Join AASL Leadership and peers across the country in an open conversation focused on leading learning in your school and community.

@ Jennison Lucas: You are not alone! I'm viewing this Town Hall for one of my graduate courses in School Library and I wanted to let you know you are not alone! I grew up in central Nebraska and now work in urban North Omaha, Nebraska. Where I work now is the polar opposite from where I grew up. I have family who still live in central Nebraska and sometimes I'll hear from them or even some old pals I used to serve in the Army with, comments about how LGBT picture books shouldn't be in public libraries or school libraries. Being told they're uncomfortable and they don't support CRT, even though they don't even know what it is but my state is in an uproar with Nebraska's Board of Education new health standards, new social studies standards and people are still visiting them and some have verbally shouted in disgraceful ways at NE's Board of Education meetings. I've had to listen to these on the news, see them on Facebook comments of my local news stories, and how we teachers are "indoctinating" them. It is insane out here and Jennison, again, I will say - you are not alone. ❤️
