School Library Month 2014

 
The Declaration for the Right to Libraries is the cornerstone document of ALA President Barbara Stripling’s presidential initiative, Libraries Change Lives, which is designed to build public will and sustained support for America’s right to libraries of all types – academic, special, school and public.
 
The Declaration for the Right to Libraries has been adapted with permission for a focus more specific to school libraries. School librarians across the country are encouraged to hold and participate in signing events using The Declaration for the Right to School Libraries.School Library Month is a great opportunity to increase public and media awareness about the value of a fully staffed and well funded school library program to the community at large.  
 
Downloadable copies of the Declaration can be found below. A signing toolkit is available to help you organize an event. AASL would like to track declaration signings from across the country. To submit your signing please fill out this online form.
