We live and work in a transformative time for school libraries. Our country is full of school librarians pouring their heart and soul into the lives and learning of their community. Our priority is making a difference in the lives of students of all ages, families and fellow staff. School librarians have a pivotal and active role in motivating and developing America’s youth into literate, technologically savvy and intellectually thoughtful members of our communities. We are the defenders of the information and reading needs and rights of our patrons. Our strength comes from the power of our association members and staff working together toward common, noble goals. This year we will focus on the future of school libraries through our involvement, the development of leaders, and advocating for excellence.
