While we all would like to devote all our energy to our jobs of being better school librarians and improving our libraries, many of us are faced with serious threats to funding for our positions and our libraries that require our focus. There are a number of forums out there for posting good ideas for advocacy for school libraries, but I thought it would be good to set up a place for discussion and for storing good ideas that we can all draw on for advocacy. Please use this space to discuss advocacy and to post letters, speech texts, videos, and anything you can think of that might give others help others to be proactive in advocating for our positions and our libraries.

March 15 Notice
with excellent tips for anyone facing potential cuts to school library positions.
