International Literacy Association 2022
…All students deserve the right to a well-funded school library
staffed with full-time certified school librarians. Equitable
access to school libraries and librarians is an issue of social
justice, as schools in the poorest and most racially diverse
communities have the least access to library services (Lance &
Kachel, 2018; Pribesh, Gavigan, & Dickinson, 2011).
…We envision and commit to school communities where teachers and librarians work together with the common goal of promoting literacy as a life-long practice.
