Service Points for BCTLA Members

The BCTLA works hard to strengthen school libraries. Advocacy is important but the direct work in schools with teacher-librarians is rewarding and critical.  We believe progressive support comes in various forms.  We are attempting to provide various functional service points that fit your needs and preferences. Support can be a quick phone call, an email, a good web site, handouts, or online communities. We believe BC teacher-librarians are talented and progressive. If you wish to volunteer your talents to one task or another, we can likely find a niche that can help strengthen our TL networks.

Join our team and volunteer your talents!
