Political Advocacy for School Librarians You Have the Power! by Sandy Schuckett

Political Advocacy for School Librarians You Have the Power!


Political Advocacy for School Librarians You Have the Power! by Sandy Schuckett

This book provides suggestions and examples for you to become a leader on local, state, and national levels by enlisting parents, teachers, and students to improve library programs.


This practical little book is a must-have for library media specialists, as well as district and state school library coordinators. Schuckett is a California school library media specialist who has been an active advocate on local, state, and national levels. Taking nothing for granted, she walks the novice through the political maze of library advocacy, whether the goal is convincing the superintendent of schools that librarians are essential or urging a senator in Washington, D. C. to vote in favor of a bill to aid libraries. A chapter of success stories drawn from the experiences of librarians across the country emphasizes the political power we really can have. Handy appendices include bulleted lists outlining proper etiquette for dealing with officials, a quick review of effective public speaking, a list of useful Web sites, and a sample of bargaining language librarians should be aware of in union contract negotiations. The situation in your school library needs improving? Stop complaining and start doing--and get the right people on your side by following the tips in this book. Highly Recommended. - Library Media Connection
