ALA Midwinter 2018

Storytime Goddesses at #alamw18

  After my first ALA Annual, my friend, (shoutout Debby) said we had to join Twitter to connect with all the librarians and book people there! I signed up- and started all these wonderful library connections! Including hearing about really cool unofficial events– like a “Storytime Deep Dive” in the Networking Uncommons hosted by the amazing Mel (of Mel’s Desk!!!) She magnanimously hosted an informal storytime chat where children’s librarians and youth services team members got together to talk about storytime gripes and philosophies. It was really great to talk to children’s library staff from around the US- in the hour or two I sat there, we had a children’s librarian from Hawaii and one from Alaska! While I love fangirling to children’s authors and illustrators, it means so much more to sit down with people who write the blogs that I consult for storytime, programming, and general library ideas!…

ALSC’s Move on Twitter

ALSC has a new Twitter username

We’ve moved! ALSC announced that it has changed its username on the social media platform Twitter, from @alscblog to @WeAreALSC. In the interim, the ALSC Office will continue to monitor the @alscblog account for activity, but will be posting official news and information via @WeAreALSC. This change is effective immediately. This move comes eight years after ALSC began using Twitter as a communication platform. Through that time the objectives of ALSC’s presence on Twitter have changed. The account is no longer used just to tweet ALSC Blog articles. After much consideration, it was felt that the username @WeAreALSC offers a better representation of the inclusive and collaborative nature of ALSC members. In addition to hosting monthly #alscchat Twitter discussions, ALSC uses Twitter as a live updating platform and customer service tool. We invite you to learn more and find ALSC on Twitter.
