HELLO, 
BC Teacher Librarians!

Welcome to Spring,  in most school districts!In the northern parts of the province, there is still a significant amount of snow, but the sun is shining! We hope that you enjoy your Spring Break, wherever that may be. Maybe you even get catch up on that 'To Be Read' pile of books. 

There have been so many great things happening with our association, that we thought it was best to send out an extra newsletter with all of the information and sources for the opportunities and celebrations. 

Thank you for being fantastic advocates for BC school libraries, and for committing to your membership of our Provincial Specialist Association.
