Donate to Support School Libraries

Help fund the fight for school libraries! We're fighting for school libraries across the country. Please help today.

We’re proud to defend school librarians and fight for school libraries across the country. We know that school librarians are on the front-lines of librarianship and that school librarians help ensure that our students get the best possible education we can provide.

For many young minds school librarians are the only source of opportunities for imaginative exploration. That’s because in many schools, the school libraries are the only freely and democratic source of information through the provision of books, programs, and services. Children are allowed to explore literature and new ideas in school libraries while also developing a love of reading and strong skills in literacy that will help them through out their life. We also know that research shows clear links from school libraries and library staff to improvements in student’s reading and academic success. School libraries are fundamental to developing engaged readers who have the capability and inclination to read and learn beyond their years at school. School libraries help students learn to find and use the information they need, to succeed now and in their future life and work. Our children deserve the best possible education.

That’s why we are so devastated whenever a school library is closed and the services of a school librarian are eliminated. We developed our digital action platform for school librarians to help aid in the fight for a better education for our children. But for this to be successful we are reliant on support from people like you.

Your donations help us fight for school librarians across the country. Every 10 dollars we raise helps us put petitions in front of 1,000 Americans and will allow us to get hundreds of signatures to put pressure on education decision makers to fund school libraries. Your contributions also help us pay for rallies and events to support school librarians and defend school libraries wherever they are being threatened as well as educate Americans about the importance of school libraries and librarians.

    I just made a donation to Save School Librarians. Possible job cuts are being considered in Atlanta. What a blow to student literacy! Bad idea!
