Celebrating School Library Month

School Library Month (SLM) is the American Association of School Librarians’ (AASL) celebration of school librarians and their programs. Every April school librarians are encouraged to create activities to help their school and local community celebrate the essential role that strong school library programs play in a student’s educational career. The 2013 theme is Communities matter @ your library®.

AASL, a division of the American Library Association (ALA), on its website, offers a number of resources and activities to help librarians celebrate the event.

They include a series of webinars produced by the AASL Advocacy Committee.

In addition, librarians can decorate their library or library website with the Communities Matter @ your library poster and web graphics.

Also, audio public service announcements are available in English and Spanish to share with local media.

For more information, watch AASL’s Twitter and Facebook accounts for daily posts and be sure to share and retweet to spread the word.
Below is a video featuring several authors sharing their favorite experiences with school libraries.
