The Elementary Secondary Education Act is going up before Congress right after Thanksgiving and we are going to need your help when it does.
Right now there is the possibility that there could be some very strong language in support of School Libraries written into the Act itself in which case we want Congress to pass it. At the same time there is a chance that it will not be present at all and we will NOT want that to pass. It’s going to be a fast turnaround, like a couple of days, so be ready on the blocks.
School Librarians are an essential part of our profession. The steady and ongoing chipping away of funding and support for School Libraries has to stop IMMEDIATELY. We are calling on all of our library colleagues to stand with School Libraries and be ready to contact their elected officials to speak up on their behalf.
