Washington School Library Advocacy Toolkit

These documents and ideas are intended to help Washington school libraries advocate for their positions and collections when those are threatened.  Although leaders from WLA, WLA School Library Division, ALA and AASL will work with local librarians to respond to job cuts and loss of funding, we believe the greatest impact comes from local librarians, parents, students, another community members leading the effort.
