The School Library Month Committee is happy to announce that each day in April, authors will be sharing their thoughts about the influence a strong school library program had on their lives. These reflections will be posted on AASL social media.
Weekly, we’ll curate the author quotes here on Knowledge Quest and include a tip inspired by the author’s reflections.
Use LibrarySparks’ activity calendar to help you plan memory making activities throughout the month.
