CALL TO ACTION


School Librarians & ESSA

Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is at the forefront of federal education legislation. ASLA is partnering with AASL to bring you information about funding and language in ESSA that can help library programs in Alabama receive support and funding. BUT without a united voice of our membership through constant contact with legislators, our voices will not be heard and our students will be greatly impacted.

Start the ESSA conversation today using the helpful tools and information found at the AASL website dedicated to ESSA at http://essa.aasl.org.

As election season is upon us, please do not forget to be in contact with state and U.S. legislators. Please visit our Legislative Advocacy area for information, talking points, and the best ways to make impactful communication.

Upcoming events


Join ASLA at the first annual EdCamp ASLA in Montgomery, Alabama on February 4, 2017.
