Whereas all libraries are venues where books, programs, services and staff can raise the effectiveness of community after school programs;
 
Whereas after school programs that incorporate school librarians and/or a school library program make available the wide resources of the library program and thereby increase the success of children and teens for information seeking, future school achievement and enjoyment of reading.
 
Whereas the U.S. Department of Education in 2007 noted a 30% increase in youth participation in library programs between 1993 and 2005 from 35.6 to 54.6 million.
 
Whereas libraries that now have state and federal grants for after school programs have experienced powerful and creative results.

 

Whereas after school programs that incorporate a school librarian and/or a school library media program contribute to student achievement and increased academic success.

 

Whereas after school programs that incorporate a librarian and a recreational reading program contribute to student success because kids that read do succeed!, therefore be it


 
Resolved that the American Library Association take action to inform decision makers of the quality of public and school libraries during the after school hours of 3-6pm and encourage increase funding for national and federal monies.
