Please join with the Capitol Hill Public Schools Parent Organization in protest of cuts in school librarians by the District of Columbia Public Schools.
The event will take place in front of DCPS headquarters at 1200 First Street, N.E. between 1pm and 6pm. on Monday, May 21st.
If these proposed cuts go through 58 District schools, with an enrollment of 16,600, will have no librarian. And no librarian will inevitably mean no library either. The chancellor, mayor and city council need to continue to hear in a loud and sustained voice that school libraries are essential to a vibrant, sustainable and successful school system.
Please attend. Bring your children. Encourage everyone you know to take part. School libraries and those who staff them are crucial to literacy development.
