School Library Month
How Can You Support Your School Librarian?
- Let them know how much you value the library media program.
- Include them in your school leadership team; after all, they are familiar with every area of the curriculum, every teacher, and every student in your building!
- Consider raising their library budgets. Students are clamoring for new books. They love to read! Your library collection is totally accountable—funds spent on library books are tracked by the DESTINY circulation system and available to students across classrooms and grade levels. That’s a lot of bang for your buck!
- Use your librarian as an instructional partner. Librarians with scheduled classes, rather than flexible schedules, are less able to collaborate if they are not included in the collaborative planning process with teachers.
