    The Maryland Association of School Librarians (MASL) states very clearly the appropriate staffing of school libraries in their position statement "… every learner in every school, including public, independent, and charter schools, in Maryland should have a full time certified school librarian at the helm of an effective school library program throughout the entire school day.” MASL believes that this same right should be afforded to students in the District of Columbia.


    DCPS cannot accomplished their mission without certified library personnel in every school in DC Public Schools. According to the DCPS website, “The mission of DC Public Schools is to ensure that every DCPS school provides a world-class education that prepares ALL of our students, regardless of background or circumstance, for success in college, career, and life.”

    Librarians are an essential part of any school. Some students do not have access to public libraries, due to a variety of reasons, from crime to homelessness.

    Students need Media Specialist to introduce them to diverse reading options and to guide them through the information technology maze.

    It has been repeatedly proven through studies that having a qualified librarian in the school improves student academic achievement.
