When the national convention of the Catholic Library Association meets in conjunction with the 103rd annual National Catholic Educational Association Convention, on April 18-21 at the Holiday Inn Downtown, a number of media specialists from local schools and parishes will be among those making presentations.
Betty Anne Pinelli of Marist School and Brian Collier will give a session on “Communicate, Captivate and Collaborate: Practical Plans to Promote Your Library, Attract Patrons and Integrate Your Media Program with the Curriculum.” Kelly Corsetti of Holy Spirit Preparatory School will speak on the topic “Great Books and Great Discussions!” Immaculate Heart of Mary School’s Sandy Wilson and St. Thomas More School’s Laura Ayala will hold a session on “What’s New in Young Adult Literature?” and Robin S. Tanis of St. Pius X High School will speak on “A Summer Program in Reading Enrichment.” Janet Claussen and Kathy Byrne will present “Connections with Collections: Enriching Faith Formation through Parish Libraries.”
Sessions at the CLA convention will be of interest to educators, school media specialists, academic librarians, and parish and community library volunteers.
All educators can attend these sessions, held close to the Georgia World Congress Center, where the NCEA convention will be occurring, with their NCEA conference badge.
