TASL's Bookmark Contest is now open.


Kick off the new year by getting your students involved with TASL's annual bookmark contest.  We celebrate this in conjunction with AASL's School Library Month.
This year's theme is: School Libraries Transform Learning. So encourage your students to express just how much their library is a part of their learning. All submissions must be postmarked by February 19, 2016. (That's a new deadline, due to snow.)
The contest is open only to the students of TASL members, so please join if you haven't already.
