Parents/Guardians

School librarians empower students to Think, Create, Share, and Grow in the school library as they learn to harness curiosity, model responsibility, inspire exploration, promote creativity, and deepen understanding. School libraries create equity and prepare all learners for college, career, and life.

Student outcomes improve when parents are involved. Ask your school librarian how you can support learning in school and at home.

Ask your school librarian how school libraries transform learning for your child.
