  • Tis the Season for Kindness

    Posted by Jill Williams on 12/4/2019

    The holidays are here! I am hoping that above all eles, that kindness is the most important part of the holidays. Gifts are wonderful, but money is sometimes hard to come by. Take a moment to remember that giving the gift of kindness is the best gift you can give or receive. Christmas time can be hard for some, and we get too caught up in the bustle and hurry; take time to let someone get in line before you, or simply smile at everyone you meet. Give the gift that we all need to receive: Kindness

     New information for State Epsilon Beta! 

    The Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL) is helping Epsilon Beta to become a more focused group. They are forming a task force to help the organization grow. The history of the group has been somewhat unfocused, so the task force will help bring the point of the club into focus. MASL is helping bring the group into the future by bringing attention to librarianship. We want to encourage students to consider the role of librarian in their future. MASL wants students to know what being a librarian means and all that the job entails. We will focus on being future ready!
