Oct 17, 2012 — I hope this doesn't sound too flippant, but it really only takes 5 minutes to do this.

Would you take 5 minutes to help SAVE SCHOOL LIBRARIES in TODAY?

Email Mayor Gray, Chancellor Henderson, and the entire DC City Council at:,,,,

I urge you to SAVE SCHOOL LIBRARIES. I support Council Member Evans’ bill to require a librarian in every school, but we can save school libraries TODAY if you will reprogram $23 Million to provide a librarian and good resources in every school. DCPS has an $800 Million budget and DC has a $140 Million surplus, so we can have librarians without sacrificing teachers or other necessities for schools. More than 3000 concerned citizens and I ( are urging you to Save School Libraries!
