I got a sub for the last hour of school today so I could be in the
(cancelled) committee meeting to hold up my book. Tomorrow I am hoping
for fair weather and good traffic so I can leave directly after school
and still be there for support. I went directly home after the meeting
was cancelled and send out e-mails to the members of the Executive
Finance Committee. See the great response I received from Rep. Moss
below. If she is your representative, or even if she isn't, please let
her know how much you appreciate her efforts.

Great points! Thanks for taking the time to send them. As a retired
English teacher and for a few years, a high school librarian, I
understand this issue and know the importance of library books and
electronic resources.

Our caucus is working hard to restore some of the funding.

Best regards,

Representative Carol S. Moss
Utah House of Representatives
Assistant Minority Whip
District 37, Holladay

Rep. Moss

If you vote to cut the line item School Library Books and Electronic
Resources appropriation, you cut support for the classroom - in all
subject areas.

I am correcting classroom research assignments right now which I
co-taught with a history teacher in the library. The library IS a
classroom. It's resources and teacher (myself) DO support the other
classroom teachers. Don't let anyone lead you astray in that regard.

The library's resources include electronic resources which allow
students to complete class-assigned research remotely - from the
classroom and at home. I buy resources specifically to meet the
information needs of assignments given by the subject teachers.

Please don't handicap those students or the classroom teachers by
cutting their access to resources.

The Executive Appropriations Committee meeting has been cancelled for 
today, March 9. It has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 10, 4:10 
PM, Room 210, Senate Building (same time same place). 

There is a glimmer of hope! Bring your book. 

I'm sitting here with Fawn Morgan (Davis Dist.), Cindy Moyle (Granite), 
Angie Christensen (Granite), Sharyl Smith, Brad Caldwell (parent), and 
Jim Henderson (Granite). We need more tomorrow!
