AASL 2015 Recap!

Last week, I made my way to Columbus, OH for the National American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Conference. I brought my camera along and made a vlog along the way – check it out below!

If you want a closer look at the sketchnotes I took, you can view them all on twitter. Did you attend the conference? What did you think?

Book of the Week: Serafina and the Black Cloak

The triumphant return!

A few weeks ago, my camera (among other random things) was stolen from my car. I know! Such a bummer! So I apologize for the lag between BOTW videos, but I’ve got a new camera now and I’m back in the game. Woo!

In just a few short weeks, I’ll be en route to my very first ever Librarian conference – the American Association of School Librarians conference, to be exact. I’m so excited to dive in and meet new friends as I learn about my new job from the varied and valuable viewpoints of experts in the field. Two sessions I’m really looking forward to are the talk on Inspiring Heroes for Our World from the Harry Potter Alliance and the session on Community Literacy Outreach from the inspirational group at Books on Bikes. I’ve also heard rumors that there might be karaoke involved somewhere? ¬†Always a bonus. Always.

In my total nerded-out enthusiasm, I’ve created an #AASL2015 twitter list where I’m following the people I’ve seen tweet about attending the conference. If you’re attending and want to follow the list, you can find it here. And if you’re attending and want to be added, send me a tweet (@corleymay) and we’ll make it happen!

Have a great week, and keep an eye out for any spooky, cloaked baddies skulking in basements and around corners.
