Brad Meltzer on the importance of school librarians

04/10/2012

Brad Meltzer: The Unsung Heroes in our Schools, as published on Huffington Post’s Libraries in Crisis page.

money quote: “When I see what is happening to school library budgets today, I am horrified to think that we live in a country where school librarians – with the power to inspire, as my former teacher inspired me – are considered expendable just for the sake of saving a few bucks.

Let’s not sacrifice our future. As policymakers and school administrators struggle with tough decisions, we as a nation must voice our support and advocate for funding, so that all children have access to 21st century school library programs.

We are a world starving for heroes. If you want to find them, support our school libraries.”
