NJASL Reintroduces Information Literacy Standards Bill S 588 for 2022 Session

Our colleagues at NJASL, the New Jersey Association of School Librarians, have reintroduced S 588, a bill that would create statewide Information Literacy standards in New Jersey schools.

Last session (2020-21), the bill was favorably heard in the Senate Education Committee but did not get called by the full Senate. In 2022, S 588 is introduced by Senators Testa, Turner, Gopal, Bucco, Singer and Greenstein to expand student success with the support of school librarians across K -12 education. EveryLibrary is supporting NJASL's legislative outreach and its campaign across the state to reach and activate people who care about the future of education. We need your support today to move this legislation forward this session. In 2021, over 550 people took action and made their voices heard. In 2022, we need to redouble our efforts about this bipartisan education bill. 

We believe that all New Jersey students deserve to learn Information Literacy skills from their school librarians. If you signed on to support the bill last session, it is time to do it again and send a fresh message to state Senators and Assembly members. EveryLibrary is proud to continue our support for NJASL's legislative agenda. We have made it very easy to voice your support and share the message. Please help New Jersey school librarians move this important framework forward.
