SPS Celebrates School Libraries
April 2023 is School Library Month. The annual celebration highlights the valuable role media specialists, school libraries, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. SPS recognizes the importance of our librarians/media specialists. Here’s what students, colleagues, and parents had to say about their school librarian.
Cleveland High School Library

“One thing I’ve learned from our librarian is how to apply to colleges and get financial aid.” – Andre Bacon, student
The role of a school librarian is an integral part of the instructional programming of the school. They teach all users the skill of locating, evaluating, using, and citing information through various resources. Libraries are often called media centers, and librarians are called media and technology specialists. But that doesn’t change the fact that the school library is where students learn to be effective users of ideas and information. Read more on the district Celebrating School Librarians.
