Redwood High School Teacher Librarian Tom Kahn alerted me to Dr. Joyce Valenza's 1/24/10 article in School Library Journal. Title is "California's Proactivity: "Best Sellers Campaign". This is excellent publicity for the California School Library Association (CSLA), its members, and its online professional development tutorials because Joyce is the most sought-after practicing "new media" school librarian in the nation, if not the world! Joyce is most known for her "Neverending Search" blog, which is now a regular feature in School Library Journal.
Tom actually alerted all California School Library Association listserv subscribers to the article and added: 'It would be great if each of us could make Jackie and CSLA proud by giving at least one "Best Seller" by the end of February's "Love Your Library Month."' Yes! Thank you, Tom, for your words of encouragement. "Best Sellers" is a grassroots advocacy program. Grassroots mean everyone gets busy to advocate for strong school libraries. [Tom is also CSLA Northern Section President and has a fine blog that I've followed for years, "My Continuing Educ@tion"]
