School Library Month 2012
You belong @ your library®
What is School Library Month?
School Library Month (SLM) is the American Association of School Librarians' (AASL) celebration of school librarians and their programs. Every April school librarians are encouraged to create activities to help their school and local community celebrate the essential role that strong school library programs play in a student's educational career. Read about the history of School Library Month.
The 2012 theme is You belong @ your library®. The AASL School Library Month Committee is busy planning activities and creating resources to help school librarians celebrate. Check back often for new materials.
| Get a jump on the celebration by contacting your local elected officials and inviting them into your school library during the month of April. Why not ask them to make a proclamation about School Library Month?
Let your school know what's going on in the library with this School Library Month flyer template!
|Use this calendar of tips to fill your month with special activities celebrating the school library.
