International School Library Month

In October each year

The International Association of School Librarianship first celebrated an International School Library Day in October of 1999, under the leadership of then IASL President Blanche Woolls. The aim of this special day was to draw attention to the importance of school libraries in the education of our children. According to the coordinator, Rick Mullholland of Canada - "In early January 2008, the executive of IASL, upon recommendation from the International School Library Day committee, approved the change from International School Library Day to International School Library Month effective October 2008. This change cooincides with the tenth anniversary of IASL celebrating school libraries. International School Library Month will allow those in charge of school libraries around the world to choose a day in October that best fits their specific situation in order to celebrate the importance of school libraries".
