It all comes together for a New York Times story on school libraries...finally!

I was tickled this morning to find out that something that started almost a year ago has finally come together! There is a great story and video on the front page of the New York Times: I am so pleased to see this story!! <http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/16/books/16libr.html?hp> The video is super, too. Here's the back story:

The reporter contacted me in March 2008 for the names of school librarians who encourage reading who were close to NY City...DUH, that would be all of us! LM_NET and the SLMS/NYLA listservs connected me with a lot of people who were willing to be interviewed. I knew that if she wanted a New York City school librarian, Stephanie Rosalia would be great--she is passionate and well-spoken--so made sure she was on the list.

She followed Stephanie Rosalia for a long time and kept in contact with AASL and ALA, talking to the ALA Public Information Office and AASL President Ann Martin as recently as 3:30pm last Friday.

She is now convinced of the importance of school libraries in students' lives and asks whether there is a school librarian in each school she considers for her youngest child according to Stephanie. I very much appreciate the story!

The story is well-timed and can be forwarded to everyone's governors and superintendents as budgets are being determined.

 

Whoo-hoo!

These jerseys which are interestingly termed retro basketball jerseys are old school. Here is an example, men football jerseys, Kobe’s jersey at the present time, but the Lakers look 20 years ago. That would be an example of the throwback kind. Sports stars put them on now and again during games also.site:http://www.nfljerseyonline.com

Nice story. Well written. Libraries and librarians are vital in our education system and must be given priorities.
