I am excited to blog today about the new South Carolina Association of School Librarians website. I am on the Information Technology Committee, and some of our focus has been on getting our website renovated.  We hired a SCASL Webmaster, Mike Heath, and I kid you not when I say this is significantly more (and […]

Kicking ourselves to the curb!

I have many friends and family anxiously awaiting this weekend to go shopping.  Why?  It’s the annual SC (and NC too) tax free holiday weekend.  Anybody and everybody can purchase certain items over the three-day weekend that begins this Friday at 12:01AM and lasts until 11:59PM Sunday.  The bonus and reason for celebration is that […]
