Let’s Be Heard Loud and Clear!

Hello Colleagues,

School librarians need a greater public profile if we are to protect our library programs and our very jobs from the  onslaught of budget cuts and layoffs.

CAL has a new Advocacy Task Force to do just that and your assistance is requested for two things. First, we need stories that spotlight the importance of school librarians and our library programs; and second, we need several Ambassadors with a passion about school libraries to speak on our behalf.

The stories will be used by the Ambassadors during their speaking engagements and CAL will incorporate their messages into the scripts and talking points they will use throughout the campaign. So, please ask your teachers, students, parent volunteers, community volunteers, administrators and fellow librarians to write short stories with
inspiring or compelling messages about a program or how a student was helped by a school librarian.

The Ambassadors will be trained by the CAL Task Force and assisted with the messages, scripts, and talking points developed. The meetings and speaking engagements will also be arranged for the Ambassadors.

We hope you will get behind this effort in a big way. This is THE WAY (and an easy way) to champion our cause. Visit the   BHAG website for more information and help us find the right Ambassadors and collect stories.

Thank you,

Linda Conway, CAL President Elect

Yvonne Miller, CASL President
