Event description

Description

On behalf of the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) Region1: Africa Sub Sahara, I would like to invite your school to the International School Library Month Celebrations (ISLM) and a Seminar for School/College/Public Librarians, Reading Teachers, PTA/SDC representatives and other relevant stakeholders. This will allow your librarian/teacher in charge/SDC/PTA representative to attend; network; share ideas and aspirations on how we can cooperate, assist each other in our quest to develop school libraries and the subsequent support of our new curriculum.

The two events will be held from 18-19 October 2018 at the National University of Science and Technology in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. The celebrations (Thursday 18/10/2018) are free of charge and we expect a lot of librarians, teachers and pupils to attend. We would greatly appreciate if we can get school children who will entertain us with poems, song and dance.

For the seminar (Friday 19/10/18) you are expected to pay a nominal fee of $60.00 non –IASL/ZimLA members and $50.00 IASL/ZimLA members per person respectively (inclusive of teas & lunch and exclusive of accommodation). The target group will be Principals, librarians, teachers in charge of libraries, PTA/SDC Representative and other interested stakeholders. A 10% discount will be effected if you register more than two participants.

The 2018 theme for ISLM is “Why I Love My School Library". It is based on the annual IASL conference theme of “Innovation, Information and Impact of School Libraries". This year we are focusing on the impact of school libraries and we have chosen a theme wording that we believe will be accessible to all our participants (aged 3 to 20 years). We are inviting them to celebrate ISLM 2018 by engaging in projects and activities to express why they love their school library. We hope that this year’s ISLM will be a wonderful, worldwide song of joy in and love for the school library.

Sub-theme is steadfastly anchored in the “One school, One library, One librarian’’ mantra.
