Arthur Ashe, Jr. Elementary Wins VAASL School Library Program of the Year
This past spring, Arthur Ashe, Jr. Elementary School Library was named as the School Library Program of the Year by the Virginia Association of School Libraries. The award was presented last week at the annual VAASL conference awards banquet to librarian Melissa Glanden, who was at Arthur Ashe, Jr ES for the past three years before moving to Hungary Creek Middle this fall. This award recognizes a VAASL School Library Program which is fully integrated into the school’s curriculum and as such is central to the learning process. It is based upon and closely follows the guidelines established by AASL for the National School Library Media Program of the Year award.
