    As a middle school and high school teacher, I have seen firsthand the importance of the school librarian in equipping my students to locate, evaluate, and effectively utilize information and become lifelong learners. I have seen the importance of the school librarian in making my students readers, writers, and researchers. And I have seen the importance of the school librarian in making me a better teacher.

    As Henry Ward Beecher said, “A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life.” Simply put, I can’t do my job and my students can’t do theirs without access to a fully staffed and fully funded school library.

    As a holder of a BS in Education, and MLS in Library Science, I implore those in “leadership” positions to support school libraries. A democracy cannot function if the citizens are not educated.

    As a former elementary school librarian, I know the value of strong school library programs. As an outstanding educator, the librarian’s significant task is not only to edit and impart information in various fields of knowledge; it is also to equip the student with the means and the incentive for acquiring new knowledge so that learning becomes increasingly independent and a life-long process.

    Access to information is central to education. All students deserve this access, which school libraries provide. Please don’t cut funding to our school libraries.
