April is School Library Month
It's Time to Celebrate!
School Library Month is the AASL's celebration of school librarians and their 
programs! Every April school librarians are encouraged to create activities to 
help their school and local community celebrate the essential role that strong 
school library programs play in a student's educational career. You can read 
about the history of School Library Month or hear from Lucille Thomas, chair of 
the first School Library Month committee.


Community Gallery
There is a large community of support for school librarians and school library 
programs! Watch AASL's Twitter and Facebook accounts for daily quotes from 
authors and illustrators professing their appreciation for the work school 
library professionals do! Be sure to share and retweet to spread the word!

Student Video Contest
What does community look like in your school? Is it learning together? Working 
toward a common goal? Building school spirit? How does your school library 
program promote community? 

Students are encouraged to submit videos detailing examples of how their school 
library connects to this year’s School Library Month theme “Communities matter @ 
your library.” Contestants are urged to unleash their creativity and just have 
fun!  Use humor, drama, music, or special effects to showcase your amazing 
school library.

Entries must be submitted to SchoolTube.com by April 16, 2013, by 11:59 P.M. CST 
to be eligible to win. Visit the contest page for a full list of contest rules 
and eligibility.    

 

Decorate your library or library website with the Communities Matter @ your 
library poster and web graphics!


What better way to show off your library than to participate in Library Snapshot 
Day during the month dedicated to school libraries!


Share these audio public service announcements (available in English and 
Spanish) with your local media.



 
Why not ask your local elected officials to make a proclamation about School 
Library Month?


 
It takes a community to build a strong school library program! Contribute to the 
AASL Community Calendar by submitting an activity that you are sponsoring 
through your school library this April.



Join your peers for a series of 20 minute webinars presented by the AASL 
Advocacy Committee.
