School Librarian Day

School Librarian Day


 April 4th School Librarian Day honors those who serve our young students so well in the local school libraries. The education of young minds needs to be nurtured and fed. Feeding those minds with good quality, yet challenging reading material and reference materials is what school librarians excel at. Take a minute today, to appreciate all the hard work that a school librarian does daily, and the patience the librarian displays, as he or she aids our youth. You may choose to show your appreciation to School Librarians in a variety of ways, including:
  • Give the librarian a big smile and a big "Thank You!"
  • Tell you librarian that she is doing a wonderful job.
  • Send an Ecard
  • Buy a nage appropriate book or reference material, and donate it to the library
The best school librarians I ever had was in college.  I learned so much from them, especially the reference librarian.  She was great!
The best my kids had was definietly elementary school.  She was a cool lady - offered sleepovers inthe libary, did wonderfully fantastic theings and got kids reading for fun.  She kept up with kids too.  She came to a school play that my son was in during high school.  She also prayed over my son when he was in Afghanistian and rejoiced with me when he came home safely.

Toobad that many schools are now cutting elementary school librarians out of their budget and replacing them with aides or volunteers.  We need our librarians to encourage reading!
