Missouri’s school libraries are transforming – physically, virtually, and philosophically – to meet the needs of our students, staff, parents, and community. Our libraries are adapting to today’s needs, building skills beyond just reading and research, and reaching into the areas of making and creating. Please use the following resources to advocate for your role in the school community!
MASL #WhatWeDo Social Media Advocacy Campaign
MASL is launching a social media campaign titled Let’s Talk About #WhatWeDo for the 2018-19 academic year. We have nine monthly themes that run from August until April. On the 10th of each month, use the monthly theme to show that #WhatWeDo supports teaching and learning! You can post your reply to Twitter (be sure to include @MASLOnline!) or comment on the MASL’s Facebook post for that month’s theme. You can post any time of day from anywhere and include media if you have photos or videos to share.
Download the Let’s Talk About #WhatWeDo campaign poster below and look for our monthly reminders to post!
