I’ll fight you for the library

I’ll Fight You For the Library  My teacher colleague Amanda Miller shared this video link to “I’ll Fight You For The Library” performed by Taylor Mali as part of the Page Meets Stage Series at the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City on April 29, 2009.  I’ve kept it and enjoy it so much that I just had to share it here with you.

This clip mirrors my passion for keeping the library open for student instruction above all. I want a sign to post on my desk, near the calendar and on my school calendar online that states “Library programming and scheduling is centered around students first and foremost. Events that infringe upon their access must occur before or after school.

Or maybe I just want to fight them for the library.
