Our 2nd NCSLMA School Library Legislative Day will be on Tuesday, June 23, 2020. We will meet state legislators who are on either the Education or Appropriations Committee.
We will also talk with legislators and aides at our "Meet and Greet" that morning during breakfast in the Legislative Building cafeteria where we will share the importance of school librarians and library funding with available legislators and aides.
Our 2 "asks" are: 1) dedicated, equitable funding for ALL public school libraries, and 2) a full-time, certified school librarian in EVERY school library.
We are looking for librarian volunteers who would be willing to meet with legislators from their district to discuss the "asks" as well as invite the legislator to visit their school. More info and sign-ups coming soon!
Dr. Teresa Starrett and Dr. Judi Moreillon proudly announce the launch of their crowdsourced video called "Principals Know: School Librarians are the Heart of the School". We hope you will share this work and this message widely in your professional learning community and on your social media networks.
