Dear school librarians and school library supporters:
Colorado Community–Please read below. I urge you to sign up for these e-mail updates that are SO important for future support of our profession.
The ALA Washington Office pursues every possible opportunity to increase Congressional support for school libraries.
Currently, the ALA is working to boost support for Senator Jack Reed?s upcoming reintroduction of a new Strengthening Kids? Interest in Learning and Libraries (SKILLS) Act.
Though the bill text has not yet been finalized, Sen. Reed continues to be our strongest ally on Capitol Hill, and strong bipartisan support for the SKILLS Act will increase the likelihood of securing provisions for school libraries in future education legislation.
In the coming months, the ALA Washington Office will need your advocacy as well as support from your community.
Please send your email address to Jessica Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org and be on alert for calls to action from our office throughout the summer.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Executive Director of ALA?s Washington Office
