Supporting #FReadom to Read

As districts undergo challenges to their school library collections, MASL reminds members that there are supports available to them via the Advocacy Now support form and through the American Library Association.  We also would like to remind members to make their voice heard by contacting congress in support of school librarians and to be aware of bills that are in the current legislature.

For support with a challenge or to report a challenge, please contact ALA.  Challenges can be reported anonymously. It is important to report every challenge so that ALA has an accurate count.

Maryland Legislation (2022 session)

National Legislation

Urge Your Members of Congress to Support a Crucial School Library Bill!

Please ask that they co-sponsor the EDUCATORS for America Act (S. 3360 / H.R. 6205).

School librarians are essential anchors for our nation’s schools, family systems and communities, and ALA strongly supports this legislation that aims to address both the current shortage of school librarians and the resources needed to support them, as well as the severe diversity gap in the field.
