Responding to School Library Cuts: My 2010-2011 Presidential Initiative
Knowledge Quest Volume 45, Number 1, ISSN 1094-9046
In this article, the author reflects on some cuts that were presented during her term as the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) President. The author developed a plan to showcase what an excellent school library program looks like so that school libraries and school librarians could escape the cuts. She asked each AASL state affiliate organization to provide the name of an outstanding school library in the state that she could visit and they could celebrate. Out of fifty states, thirty-five participated in what was named the "Vision Tour," providing the general public with a vision of outstanding school libraries. Why didn't every state participate? Some state leaders maintained they could not choose only one school in their state. The author shares her experiences from this tour.
