It is distressing and depressing to announce that Granite district has
eliminated their elementary library media teacher positions and replaced
them with aides.  This is a devastating blow to the library media program in
the state of Utah.  My sincere thanks and appreciation go to these dedicated
professionals.  

We will miss their many contributions to and support for library media.
Their influence on children will last for years to come as the children they
have taught and touched mature and carry with them the wonderful world that
was opened to them through books enjoyed, and lessons learned.  I wish them
well in their new assignments.  They will be sorely missed.

Sadly but sincerely,
