Celebrate and Act Now - HB1355

We now have SIXTY-TWO co-sponsors for HB 1355 - One Certified Librarian Per Public School. This is amazing work that many school librarians have done in talking with and meeting with PA Representatives all over the state. Thanks also to our Local and State Advocacy Committee and Deb Kachel/Co-Chair for the many phone calls, visits, and emails to get this far.  Let's celebrate this accomplishment - but continue to work for more co-sponsors and keep the momentum moving.

If your representative is listed below - Send them an email, make a phone call or schedule a visit to thank them personally. Remind them why this legislation is so important to the students in Pennsylvania.
