EveryLibrary Plans a Rally for Philadelphia School Librarians on Jan. 24

EveryLibrary and the Pennsylvania School Librarians Association (PSLA) are hosting the Rally to Restore Philadelphia School Librarians ahead of the ALA Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits in Philadelphia. With the aim of calling for the “restoration of school librarian positions in Philadelphia city schools and in districts around the state,” it will be held on Friday, Jan. 24, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. EST in front of the School District of Philadelphia Administration Building (440 N. Broad St.).

There are currently “fewer than 8 school librarians in the district for its more than 200,000 students and over 300 schools, making it the worst librarian to student ratio in the nation. Pennsylvania ranks as the 6th worst state for school librarian losses since 2009-2010. Only 30% of Pennsylvania school districts have full-time librarians in each of their buildings.”

For more information, read the press release.
