Advocacy for NM School Libraries

Special Interest Group Advocating for Excellence in New Mexico School Libraries



Two issues came to light during the New Mexico Statewide Conference on Libraries, and we would like to find out more about YOUR library. Would you take five minutes (or less) to answer these two short quizzes? These two issues are very important as we prepare for Library Legislative Day and the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Please only respond if you are a New Mexico SCHOOL librarian.

Thank you so very much!
