We are fortunate to have so many dedicated and talented school librarians in Colorado. Recently, Sudi Hope Stodola worked with a team of librarians from Denver Public Schools to create a video to share this important message. Many, many thanks to Sudi and contributors Alfredo Pinto, Cindy Spruce, Chris Coble, Cheri Hilton, Stacy Nishioka, Jim Goffred and Karen Burns. Here is Sudi’s message:
In response to the many cuts in our district, Denver Public School librarians created a video as part of our advocacy campaign. The goal is to distribute this video to administrators teachers and parents to (re)establish the view of school librarians as teachers and essential, rather than as a position easily replaced by hourly employees.
Those of us involved in the project feel rather proud of our product. Please view and offer feedback and/or share with others as you see fit.
