To add to your library advocacy file:

A great story about the value of school librarians in the New York Times:
In Web Age, Library Job Gets Update
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/16/books/16libr.html?ref=technology

There is a good video on the 21st Century Librarian embedded in the article as well, following the story.

Naturally, don't miss the comments section at the end of the story:

Also, Illinois has found an unusual method to fund libraries and library programs. They are issuing a special edition license plate with President Obama's image on it:

Teresa,
Welcome to the class!
Thanks for the links to the articles - I'll definitely take a look at these.
I really like the idea the license plate funding idea.
