Hi everyone,

The current federal budget environment offers challenges – and, believe
it or not, opportunities – for school librarians. You may have heard
about the many proposed cuts to school library programs as well as the
upcoming ESEA reauthorization (also known as the reauthorization of No
Child Left Behind). At the same time, members of Congress and their
staff are looking for positive stories from their district, particularly
on education and economic issues. Fortunately, school librarians have a
tremendous opportunity to tell a story that will matter to legislators.
The role you play in preparing America’s youth for 21st century jobs,
promoting quality of life and economic development and improving
literacy in communities around the country must be understood. Attend
this webinar to understand how you can get legislators to listen up and,
more important, agree with you on school library policy and funding
issues.
