SOLC 2015 Day 25: The board meeting

"Whereas school libraries provide
                                             support
                                             strengthen
                                             teach and model
                                             foster
                                             value

Educational resources
Literacy and lifelong learning
Families, communities, the great equalizer
Emerging technologies
Research and scholarship
Diversity and intellectual freedom
                           
                                            Joining and celebrating."*

How strong we are, how much we do, those who work among the students and the stacks in library programs.  I am proud to be associated with such vibrant verbs and honorable values.  Sitting in a row filled with my fellow librarians, I could not help but smile and nod in agreement. 



*(Paraphrased from the Round Rock ISD School Board Resolution , agenda pg 22,  in support of National Library Week and School Library Month, March 24, 2015).

    1. Whooohooo! With news of cuts in other places still circulating, it's nice to hear about libraries being supported at the district level.
