Hello library friends,

Today I realized how little some people know about what we do as library-media teachers.  I wrote a letter to the editor about school library funding, and the resulting comments appalled me. People don't know what we do and what goes on in school libraries!  

This experience has shown me that I need to be taking every chance I can to show my school and community what happens in the library.  We need to talk about the library in every school newsletter, in every PTA meeting, on the morning announcements, whenever we can, so others can understand how school libraries can affect student achievement and make students life-long readers and learners.

Do your part--get the word out!!
