If you have already contacted Senators Mikulski and Cardin to ask them to co-sponsor the Strengthening Kids’ Interest in Learning and Libraries (S 1328), then thank you! If not, it’s not too late!
As of now, neither of Maryland’s Senators has co-sponsored the bill. The bill would ensure effective school libraries by amending the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which is up for reauthorization. Even if you are not a school librarian, please consider contacting the Senators. For more details and links to talking points and contact information, please see the earlier blog posting.
Thank you in advance for any advocacy efforts!
