April is a month in which we take time to feature libraries!
As a result, each week CMLE will post noteworthy “happenings” pertaining to libraries appreciation.

  • This week CMLE recognizes School Library Month (SLM) sponsored by the American Association of School Librarians’ (AASL). This is a month long celebration of school librarians and their programs. In April 1985, a small committee published a 52 page book commemorating school media centers and served as the foundation for the  first  national celebration designated as “School Library Month.” Since then, every April school librarians are encouraged to create activities to help their school and local community celebrate strong school library programs-highlighting their role in a student’s education. We would like to hear from you- take a moment and share one thing you are doing to recognize School Library Month (place in the comment section below)!

One thought on “Library Month is Almost Here!”

  1. Our library staff presents to the school board in April. We showcase the projects students are accomplishing and tell the board how we are investing the funds they give us to use.
