The Moms Did It!

If you’ve been following the wonderful story of Lisa, Susan, and Denette, you’ll be happy to know that the Washington State moms are half way there.  Senate Bill 6380 passed by a resounding and unanimous vote of 49 to 0!  It now moves to the State House.

We’re not there yet but we’ve learned that:

  • Grassroot efforts work. 
  • Politicians will listen to mothers who care about their children’s access to strong libraries. It’s about the children.
  • Washington can be a model for the rest of us.

    Thanks for highlighting this great example of grassroots advocacy for school libraries. This is a highlight for all of us. Hopefully, this will spread across the nation as all parents and teachers and administrators and legislators realize the importance of literacy for the 21st century learner!
