 CSLA 1915 – 2015 Centennial Celebration


CSLA will hold its Centennial Conference February 5 – 8, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel San Francisco Airport. Please save the date!




The Southern Region of the California School Library Association (CSLA) invites school library staff and supporters from all segments of the profession, and all parts of the state, both Southern and Northern Regions, to come to our Fall Workshop in Bakersfield on October 18, 2014, from 8am-3:30pm. This is a great opportunity for networking, social interaction, new ideas, and professional development.

CSLA will celebrate its 100th anniversary in February 2015, a monumental time, and with the Common Core State Standards, librarians are more important than ever…our time is now.  With the Common Core, all levels, K-16, and all members of CSLA, both professional and paraprofessional, have so much in common…working together to help students reach that common goal of being ready for college and career.

“Our Time is Now!  We Have So Much in Common.”
