State School Library Legislative Day, May 20, 2019

Our 1st NCSLMA State School Library Legislative Day will be Monday, May 20, 2019.  NCSLMA is looking for volunteers that are interested in advocating on a state level for libraries/librarians. WE NEED YOU! We are looking for volunteers to:

a) be willing to meet with your state legislator (who is on an Education or Appropriations Committee) on May 20, and

b) open your library at a later date for a visit from your state legislator. 

We are looking for volunteer librarians from the following districts:

  • Senate Districts 2, 3, 5, 11, 16, 17, 26, 28, 35, 36, 40, 44, 48; 
  • House Districts 6, 20, 25, 32, 33, 36, 42, 49, 51, 54, 55, 60, 68, 70, 73, 82, 83, 94, 95, 96, 103, 114, 116.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

We will also invite legislators and aides to a "Meet and Greet" Ice Cream Social from 11am-1pm where we will be sharing the importance of school librarians and library funding. We hope you will consider joining us!

Thanks for your advocacy! Stipends may be available to those who qualify from listed districts (amount will be determined by available advocacy/legislative budget and quantity of volunteers who apply). 

PLEASE FILL OUT FORM IF YOU CAN VOLUNTEER. Please fill out volunteer form by Friday, March 29, 2019 for planning purposes. Thank you all so much!

Principals Know: School Librarians are the Heart of the School

Dr. Teresa Starrett and Dr. Judi Moreillon proudly announce the launch of their crowdsourced video called "Principals Know: School Librarians are the Heart of the School".  We hope you will share this work and this message widely in your professional learning community and on your social media networks.
