Champion the Importance of School Libraries and School Librarians

Week of Tuesday, March 15

Champion the importance of school libraries and school librarians.

Everyday Advocacy helps you take small steps that make a big difference for the youth and families we collectively serve through libraries.

This week, raise your voice in support of the critical ways school libraries and school librarians prepare students for success both in school and in life.

Here are just a few starting points:

If you work in a public library, reach out to a school library colleague and ask what you can do to support his or her efforts.

If you work in a school library, reach out to a parent, teacher, administrator, or your local public librarian to talk strategy (e.g. visiting the alderman's office or attending the next local school council meeting together).

Talking up the importance of school libraries and school librarians is Everyday Advocacy in action!
