SKILLs Act reintroduced with school library provisions

The Strengthening Kids’ Interest in Learning and Libraries (SKILLs) Act (S 1328) has been reintroduced as a bi-partisan bill.  It includes some important provisions to make sure schools have effective libraries.  For more information, please see the District Dispatch posting.

S 1328 has been referred to the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee, but no mark-up date has been set.  ALA is encouraging people to contact Senators to ask for support of S 1328.  No Action Alert has been set up, but you can still use Capwiz to contact Senators Mikulski and Cardin.  Senator Mikulski serves on the HELP Committee, so her support would be particularly helpful.
