The AASL Libraries in Public Charter Schools Task ForceThe AASL Libraries in Public Charter Schools Task Force is looking for input to help them in their charge of reviewing the status of public charter schools in each state; review current status and role of libraries and school librarians in public charter schools in the United States; and recommending how AASL might advocate for libraries and school librarians within public charter schools. Thus, we are interested in hearing from individuals who have information about libraries in charter schools in their state. The Task Force is also specifically interested in hearing from librarians at charter schools for input on how AASL can best support them. Thus, if you are a librarian at a charter school or have information about libraries in charter schools in your state, please respond to the following survey by January 31st: http://bit.ly/AASLCSLIB
