Greetings!

This evening, on the KSL 10:00 News, Nadine Wimmer, news anchor, will present a 
story she created after observing Lori Komlos, library technology teacher at 
Highland Park Elementary in the SLC School District, review the Big6 with sixth 
graders. Lori, classroom teacher Andrea Pili, and the students are interviewed 
about the value of the Big6 and the school library program and the students had 
an opportunity to share the products they created to show what they learned. 
Julie Atwood, the district's Supervisor for Educational Technology and Library 
Media, organized the field trip on the district and school side, while Barbara 
Smith, Director of the PIRC Program for Utah and a member of the Davis Board of 
Education, and I invited Nadine Wimmer. I'm waiting for final confirmation of 
the date and time. If there's a change, I'll let you know. 

Michael Chipman, a reporter with KUER 90.1 FM, interviewed Georgia Loutensock 
about school libraries in his story about how technology is changing libraries. 
Listen on Monday, December 20th, at 7:35AM and 8:35AM on KUER to hear what he 
has to say about school libraries. 

With a very difficult legislative session just ahead, positive publicity for 
school library programs is essential. Please do what you can to help. 

Sincerely,

Sharyl Smith

Former State Specialist for Library Media, USOE
