PSLA Conference 50th Anniversary Planning Committee

PSLA has a very illustrious history beginning in 1957 with its formation and has continued to grow since then for the benefit of the students and communities we serve.  Part of this history is the PSLA Annual Conference which began in 1973 and has become an integral piece of the association.

In 2023, the PSLA Annual Conference will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary (Gold Anniversary).  We are forming a committee of past and present PSLA leaders, conference committee members, and PSLA members to help to generate ideas and initial planning for this monumental event.

 If you could please complete the following survey with your interest in participating or not that will help us move forward in the formation of this committee.

Thank you for your considering being part of this committee to make this a memorable event.

Pennsylvania School Librarians Association Presidential Award – Senator John P. Blake

Senator John Blake has provided ongoing support and leadership in his commitment to public education. Senator Blake introduced Senate Bill 1269 in an effort to maintain strong school library programs across the state of Pennsylvania staffed by certified school librarians.  According to his website, “Senator John Blake’s aspiration for a seat in the Senate of Pennsylvania was motivated by his determination to help and serve others – in his hometown, his region and across the state – in achieving a better quality of life. Senator Blake works very hard every day reflecting the sensibilities, the wishes and the opinions of the people he represents. He is very deliberative and careful in rendering judgment on public policy issues affecting the people of Pennsylvania and the constituents of the 22nd District. Senator Blake’s education, experience and local roots inform and guide his beliefs about the value of public service and the significant, profound duties and responsibilities of holding public office
