Are you using Canva?  There's so many things you can create on Canva!  No matter your expertise, Kim Luppino has something to offer in our March workshop. 

 Mark your calendar for March 13th!  No snow date. If we run into bad weather, we will go virtual. 

Don't forget to bring a device!

Use the link above to see Jess's list of the Best Books of 2023.  She has curated them into three lists;  Elementary, Middle School and HS. You will need to sign into Mackin to see the list, but you do not need to be a Mackin customer to create an account.  (So sign up for an account and you can see the list for free!)   - Nancy

Constitution and History of MCSMA


Morris County School Library Association was founded in 1958, but the earliest surviving minutes date to the March 25, 1964 meeting held at Dover High School.  Our earliest membership list dates back to 1965.  Dues in 1965 were $2.00 and were raised to $5.00 in the late 1970's.  The first edition of News and Views was published in November, 1978.  It was edited by Bea Stone.  The early history of our organization was compiled by Dora Stolfi, but unfortunately this material was lost after her death in 1979.

 

 Many thanks to Barbara Scanlan who compiled this information.
