I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight. If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
My name is Derrick Barnes and I am the author/creator of the new hit SCHOLASTIC book series, RUBY AND THE BOOKER BOYS.
Please visit my page to learn more about me, the series, the rest of my books, and most importantly how to invite me in to present Ruby Booker and her family to your students.
peace and blessings
