VAASL is excited to bring back our #VAASLSmallSteps campaign this month! Throughout the month we encourage you to complete small steps to advocate and promote our school libraries.  

Check out our School Library Month  #VAASLSmallSteps calendar for a variety of ideas that can be used any day of the month!  We know some of you have spring break in April, use these ideas when they fit best. Every time you complete a small step, let us know on this form and you will be entered in the drawing for a prize!

Most importantly, please share on social media with the #VAASLSmallSteps to inspire others!  Now more than ever we need to showcase just how essential school librarians are for student success! 

Check out daily posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for reminders.
