As a graduate from the University at Buffalo's Master of Library Science program, I have finally achieved a life long dream of becoming a librarian. I love working with students, a trait that I developed through working at the Orchard Park Public Library. I am currently a school librarian in the Western New York Area and a Co-President of the School Librarians of Western New York
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!
