2016 School Library Month National Spokesperson

This year's spokesperson is Megan McDonald, author of the beloved Judy Moody and Stink books.


“I would not be who I am without the early impact of my school library and librarian,” said McDonald. “I grew up to become a librarian. I grew up to become a storyteller. I grew up to become a writer. School librarians not only foster a lifelong love of reading and story, they encourage thinking and creativity. They support curious minds. They inspire young imaginations. School librarians shape lives."
