Sep 18, 2012 — Hi Everyone -

Thanks to everyone who came out to the H Street Festival this weekend where we had over 2000 books and collected 601 handwritten signatures! Toki Underground restaurant (Chef Erik and everyone) and ANC Commissioner David Garber are true supporters of our Save Librarians effort!

ALSO thanks to your support, we getting some political movement to save school librarians! DC Council Member Jack Evans (Ward 2) is proposing a bill which requires a librarian, art, and music teacher in every school (and we know there is money for it - it is just a matter of Chancellor Henderson's priorities!). See this Washington Post blog (Click on Community Activists to see the Change.org! And click on Adorable Kids to see my son Kai and his friends!):
