CHICAGO – Bound To Stay Bound Books (BTSB) continues its support of school libraries and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) through its sponsorship of school library advocacy packs containing tools to spread the word about the many ways school librarians are transforming teaching and learning.
“Bound to Stay Bound Books is pleased to be able to help AASL inform people about the critical role school libraries and librarians play in the process of educating children, our country’s future,” said Bob Sibert, BTSB president.
The advocacy pack includes 25 copies of a limited print edition of the digital supplement AASL produced in collaboration with American Libraries, “School Libraries Transform Learning.” The pack also contains assorted brochures from the “School Library Programs Improve Student Learning” advocacy series, another AASL advocacy tool generously sponsored by BTSB.
“We are so fortunate to have great support from Bound To Stay Bound Books,” said Terri Grief, AASL President. “The digital supplement and the advocacy brochures are powerful tools that need to be shared with stakeholders. Our sincere thanks to BTSB for advocating for our students and for supporting AASL and our members!”
Packs will first be mailed to delegates and leadership of state and regional school library associations for distribution to state-level policy makers, administrators, and school board leaders. Additional BTSB sponsored advocacy packs will be made available to AASL national conference attendees and to the profession-at-large.
