Keep Our Libraries Open!

Libraries are in danger in the state of California.  Some elementary schools have closed their libraries all together.     

A nearby elementary school district is losing 4 librarians to retirement at the end of the school year. 
When school resumes in the fall, school age children in this district will only be able to go to their libraries once a month…the remaining librarians will be spread between the ten schools in the district. 
We library technicians and librarians in California need your help! 

The organization called CALIB is trying to get columnist Yvette Cabrera, writer for the Orange County Register to write another article on libraries.  Members of CALIB want her to see that libraries are still a “Hot Topic.”  (Not to be confused with the scary Goth store in the local mall.) 

Please click on any/all of the 3 following links. 
By clicking on these links, we can show the columnist that this topic is still timely and important to us…especially our children. 

Here are the articles:

If you can click on these links and read the articles over the next few days that would help us! 
Thank you!

    This IS a Hot Topic (and not to be confused with that Goth store at the mall). At my school, the librarian is history. Unless we get parent volunteers, children will be learning to check out and shelve books under my watchful eye. This is so pathetic.
