            Core Values in School Librarianship

            Responding with Commitment and Courage
            The school library profession has been in “crisis” for more than a decade. Educational
            decision-makers have not been made aware of or sold on the core values of school
            librarianship and its value to students, classroom teachers, administrators, and the entire
            school community. Budgetary priorities often do not include school librarians, resulting
            in a lack of funding and the elimination of many positions, which can cause many school
            librarians to feel vulnerable and afraid. Guideposts are needed to offer today’s school
            librarians a chance to connect or reconnect with their passion for literacy, learning, and
            serving that led them to the profession.                          May 2021, 185pp, 6 1/8x9 1/4
