Grassroots rally calls for equitable funding
American Library Association
'Funding for nation's school libraries declines as their value increases'
Thank you to all those that came, over 100 folks came out on a really cold and rainy day in Olympia. Marty Brown from the Governor's office spoke. Senator McAuliffe, Chair of Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee, Rep. Kathy Haigh-Chair of SubAppropriations for Education, Rep. Pat Sullivan, along with the ALA President Dr. Roy and AASL President Sara Kelley Johns all spoke. To hear support for school library funding being called out on the capitol steps in many ways would've been unthinkable 10 weeks ago! Thank you for your support.
If you didn't make the rally if the miraculous happens and the House Bill and Senate Bill make it there is a chance they could be scheduled for a floor vote on the same day. If so, we've been told it would be great to have as many people in Olympia on that day as possible.
