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.
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!
