AASL Town Halls are a monthly opportunity for school library professionals to network and brainstorm around a central theme. During the town halls, participants share successes, solicit ideas, and strategize the best ways to meet the needs of school librarians and their learners. Join AASL leadership, special guests, and peers across the country in an open conversation focused on leading learning in your school and community.
Town Halls are recorded and archives are shared as a part of the AASL Learning Library. Participants are granted speaking rights via their microphones if they wish to respond to a question from their moderators. As a webinar participant, you will receive follow up emails from AASL.
