Action Alert! Monday 11am Twitter bomb; ESEA hearing not to include school libraries

Since school libraries were not included in the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) bill that passed out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, they will also not be included in the Senate’s ESEA hearing on Tuesday, November 8th.

The American Library Association Washington Office (ALA-WO) would like to make people aware of this slight and they need your help. If you use Twitter or know people who do, please take part in and/or publicize the upcoming Twitter bomb.

In order to create a concentrated Twitter bomb, ALA-WO is requesting that you send the following tweet out on Monday, November 7th at 11:00am Eastern time:

Senate holding #ESEA hearing 11/8 & #SchoolLibraries aren’t included. Why?! Good #schools need good #libraries!

For people who want to send the tweet directly at one of Maryland’s Senators, there are enough remaining characters to do so.

For Senator Mikulski:

@SenatorBarb Senate holding #ESEA hearing 11/8 & #SchoolLibraries aren’t included. Why?! Good #schools need good #libraries!

For Senator Cardin:

@SenatorCardin Senate holding #ESEA hearing 11/8 & #SchoolLibraries aren’t included. Why?! Good #schools need good #libraries! 

Thanks in advance for your advocacy and your assistance to spread the word!
