Petition Update

Feb 4, 2013 — Dear Save School Librarians petition signers,

Thank you very much for your support of our Save School Librarians efforts in DC. We started this fight for libraries many months ago and, thanks to your support and the School Libraries Task Force's hard work, the Chancellor has committed to a library and librarian in every school. But now we need the Chancellor to allot the funds to fulfill that promise. There is now a $400 Million budget surplus (a recently announced increase from the $140M surplus previously) in the city budget. Please tell the Mayor and Chancellor to use $40M of it for schools (instead of saving it for a "rainy day fund"):

Mayor Vincent Gray

Chancellor Kaya Henderson
kaya.henderson@dc.gov
202-442-5885

Thank you! Bella Dinh-Zarr
