Our 1st NCSLMA State School Library Legislative Day was on Monday, May 20, 2019. We met with state legislators who where on an Education or Appropriations Committee.
We also talked with legislators and aides at our "Meet and Greet" Ice Cream Social where we shared the importance of school librarians and library funding.
Our 2 "asks" were: 1) dedicated, equitable funding for ALL public school libraries, and 2) a full-time, certified school librarian in EVERY school library.
Now the followup begins.
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.
