School Libraries Report - May-Aug 2015

Laura Sanders, President

Alissa Rossellini, Vice-President

The ABQLA School Libraries Section had a busy spring with two events. The first, Book Art 2.0, was held on April 7th at Westmount Library. Participants had the chance to repurpose weeded books through book sculpture and origami. It's a great way to breathe new life into old books while introducing maker culture into school libraries.

Our second event, also at Westmount Public Library, was An Evening with YA author Don Aker, held in conjunction with the TD. Canadian Children's Book Centre on May 8th. Mr. Aker shared how his experiences teaching high school in Nova Scotia influenced him to write his bestselling novels.

For the 2015-2016 year, Laura Sanders will be Section President and Alissa Rossellini will be Section Vice- President.
