Thanks so much to Rita Painter, Menchaca Elementary Librarian, for stepping up to SYNC UP at the 2nd annual Diversity Summit at TLA! She will represent us well!  She has been chosen as one of the national judges for the Walter Award (We Need Diverse Books Organization), so this is right up her alley! Way to go, Rita!

Maya McElroy, librarian at Graham Elementary, has been selected to serve in the Inaugural Selection Committee for the Little Mavericks Graphic Novel Reading List. This is a new list created by the Children's Round Table Committee of TLA.  The Texas Little Maverick Graphic Novels Reading List (TLMGNRL) is a recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Children’s Round Table (CRT). The purpose of the list is to encourage students in grades K-5 to explore a variety of current graphic novels​.  In addition, she has also been  selected to be the latest TALL Texan.  The TALL Texans Leadership Development Institute provides advanced leadership and management education in service to all the libraries of Texas and the communities they serve.  This is a great learning/growing experience for any librarian.  Congratulations Maya!
