Twitter on Thursdays Preview 11/19/2015

In light of the article posted in Charlotte Observer, Are School Librarians Going the Way of the Milkman? (, we want to continue the conversation that has ignited passionate responses in our school library community.

On the flip side, Scholastic re-launched its School Libraries Work campaign, which provides stakeholders and the community-at-large with reports about the positive effects that licensed, full-time media specialists have on student achievement. Visit this link, to receive your report.

During the #NCSLMAchat next Thursday, 11/19, we want to foster a proactive dialogue on the school library profession. Please join us to discuss ways we can advocate for ourselves and our fellow SLMSs. Themes will include how to promote the many responsibilities we have in serving our schools, how we spend our after school hours, how NCSLMA and other associations can aid our profession, and much more.

We have guest hosts that will submit prompts and questions to move the conversation along. If you are new to Twitter chats, see our blog post from  “Twitter on Thursdays Preview 9/24/2015” or reach out to [email protected] and we can provide assistance.

We look forward to hearing your positive and inspiring thoughts about advocating for our profession!

Great subject and awesome timing! I want to let our CMS peers know that we are advocating for you as an organization. I wrote a "Letter to the Editor" that was published on November 11, 2015 expressing my encouragement to the community to question the practice of replacing certified MCs with unqualified personnel or deleting the position completely. If there is anything further we can do to support CMS MCs please do not hesitate to e-mail me at [email protected] -Kimberly Collette, NCSLMA Advocacy Committee Chair
