    East Orange, New Jersey has cut school library media specialist positions which hurts students in this underserved community. School libraries are closed 50% of the time and students lose access.

    The state of New Mexico has few school librarians left outside of the larger districts, due to extreme budget cuts. We need help getting librarians back in the schools and stable funding for libraries.

    I have been a librarian since 1972…my school district in Monroe Michigan has NO librarians and NO school libraries. Although I retired 4 years ago, I continue to advocate for the return of a central library at the high school. Classroom book collections are good but without an information/learning resource specialist aka: librarian as a team member, teacher and students are misssing one of the most Important Ways to foster reading, provide diverse authentic materials, and contribute to curriculum development.

    Hi, Wyoming has a very small tight knit community of school librarians. However, do to the economic crisis in our state the legislature have slashed budgets and school districts have cut most of the school library positions across the state, because of how few we are, and how spread out we are, we do not know how or have the funds to advocate for schools librarians. We would love help in this as the school districts and state legislature are looking at making more cuts to school libraries in the next few years.

    Lapeer Community Schools has a total of 9 schools in the district. Ten years ago there were three certified librarians. Next school year there will be only one and that one has been assigned to teach 2 hours of social studies and take care of the libraries.
