Support School Librarians for Nevada's Children

The Nevada state Senate is considering SB 143, a bill that would require schools across the state to maintain a school library. It would be a great gift to the future of education here if every child, regardless of how well funded their local schools are, could have access to the amazing resources of an up-to-date school library.

The Nevada state Senate is considering SB 143, a bill that would require schools across the state to maintain a school library. It would be a great gift to the future of education here if every child, regardless of how well funded their local schools are, could have access to the amazing resources of an up-to-date school library. Most importantly, SB 143 would ensure that school librarians would be working every day with our kids to teach information and news literacy skills, and learning across the curriculum. From Elko to Esmeralda Counties, SB 143 will provide equity for small and rural school library collections. In places like Clark and Washoe Counties, certified school librarians would be there to help all students learn across the curriculum. 


EveryLibrary is proud to stand with the Nevada Library Association and the Clark County School Librarians Association as they support SB 143.  We need your help to move it in the Nevada state Senate. The education committee, the finance committee, and your own state Senator need to hear from you about your priorities for education. Studies across the country have shown that school children learn better and have higher rates of academic achievement when they have a school librarian in their lives. If you think it is time for kids across Nevada to have that same advantage, please use this form to send an email to your state Senator. 


Every elected official in Carson City needs to hear about how SB 143 will improve our schools. Please use the form and send your message today.
