Greetings Beth,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen

Oh yeah! That was a great class. I am starting school again in January to get my licensure. I got as general MLIS because I couldn't do the practicum since I worked in a public library. I think I only have a couple of classes to take to get the lincensure. I'm taking school library first.

Really? Which class? We probably had many together since we all were basically doing the same thing. I was in public library for a while then went home and had two kids. Now, I'm in School media. I am really exicted.
