District of Columbia Public School library programs are currently being threatened by budget cuts and we need your help to get our voices heard. 

After being named one of the top-performing urban school districts in the country for gains in reading, why is DCPS laying off school librarians who hold the key to encouraging reluctant/struggling readers to read?
This "cost-cutting" move undermines progress towards improved reading scores, especially in poor communities.
