GASL Information

Better late than never! :)

Good morning, Media Specialists of Guilford County!

Below, you’ll find the slides that got lost on their way to our district meeting. We are still accepting membership monies, and you can send your $20 to Patty Stringer at Northwest Middle.

Want to get involved?

The Technology Committee Chair is open, and we'd be happy to have you serve with us. Please send Jessica Sherard ( an email if you're interested!

You're Invited!

As we mentioned at the district meeting, our focus this year is to continue fostering a welcoming, inclusive environment for our Media Specialist family! We’ll do this by offering Social PLC opportunities.

Our first Social PLC, the weekend of September 25 and 26, will focus on the challenge that Tammy and Jackie put forth at our district meeting: Extreme Media Center Transformation Challenge! Each group will discuss ways to make changes - both big and small - in the library. We're all experts in our school and have valuable ideas and practices to share; this is another opportunity for us to learn from each other while strengthening the library community!

Below are the times and locations in chronological order from which you can choose...or be bold and attend more than one! :) A week prior to this, we’ll send an Outlook calendar invitation that will have updated information about the locations and times, but you can go ahead and mark your calendar!
