Celebrate School Library Month
The month of April is School Library Month -- a chance to celebrate not just the books in those revered spaces, but the dedicated and inspired folks who staff our school libraries across the country. Over at The Library Girl's Blog, Jennifer LaGarde (aka, Library Girl) has posted an interactive 30-day calendar as an official crowd-sourced ode to librarians everywhere. It is fun to see how librarians (who are some of the most likely readers of the Library Girl's Blog) celebrate and recognize the work they do. From being a school's secret weapon when it comes to implementing the Common Core to being one of the most influential mentors a child will have in becoming a lifelong reader, teacher-librarians play critical and essential roles at the very heart of every school. A happy and well deserved applause to you all from LP Reads the April!
