Resolution that School Libraries and Librarians are Critical to Educational Success
I want to be sure everyone is aware of an important resolution which was passed by ALA Council this week, the Resolution that School Libraries and Librarians are Critical to Educational Success.
This action was moved by our fellow youth division AASL and endorsed by our own ALSC Board of Directors, and calls for actions to support the "goals of sustaining school libraries" in recognition that all "members of ALA have an obligation to help ensure that every child in America receives a strong foundation in literacy." The full resolution is attached.
